Banker sacked due to COVID-19 arrested for armed robbery

The suspects

Moses Keffi, a former banker in the employ of a second generation bank (name withheld), who was sacked in the COVID-19-induced downsizing ongoing in blue-chip has been arrested for armed robbery.

Keffi, according to Osun Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, was arrested last Thursday for hijacking two trailers loaded with toiletries at gunpoint along Osun/Ile-Ife Expressway.

The 38-year-old allegedly carried out the vile operation in cahoots with one Odeyemi Oluwafemi and Isah Lawal, who were apprehended with him.

In Olokode’s account, the robbery gang laid ambushed on motorists on the said roads at 4.000am, robbing them of the trucks with the goods worth millions of naira, N130,000 in cash and mobile phones.

Their bubble was said to have been burst by police operatives patrolling the road who went in search of the suspects and apprehended them after the crime was brought to their notice by victims.
