Operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team have smashed a robbery gang which specialised in robbing women of expensive vehicles in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
Three members of the gang arrested by the police were identified as Ego Ike, Obinna Igwe and Adamu Nuhu.
City Round learnt that the suspects usually took the stolen vehicles to Niger Republic, where they sold them.
It was gathered that the police went after the gang members after they allegedly stole a 2016 Toyota Corolla from an official of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, who was on her way home from work.
The suspects were said to have driven the car to Katsina State, from where they took it to Niger Republic.
Nigerien policemen reportedly impounded the vehicle and arrested a member of the gang identified simply as Yellow, while the three others escaped.
