Rapid Response Squad (RRS) officers have successfully apprehended a car snatcher identified as Dayo Jimoh, aged 36, after he and two other suspects hijacked two vehicles at gunpoint along Ojodu-Berger Road, Lagos. The arrest was made in the early hours of Saturday, March 11, 2023, shortly after Jimoh’s gang had snatched a 2003 Toyota Corolla with registration number BDG-946-GZ. The suspects arrived at the scene in a 2005 Toyota Camry with registration number KRD-958-HS, which they had previously stolen at gunpoint while disguised as passengers at Oworo.
While the investigation is ongoing, the police have urged the rightful owners of the recovered vehicles to come forward with proof of ownership to claim their property. Meanwhile, Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, has instructed his men to intensify their efforts to apprehend the two suspects still at large.
