TopNaija reports that the Bayelsa State Vigilante Service has arrested three suspected criminals for allegedly robbing a 15-year-old girl, Boma Sunday.

 

It was gathered that the three suspects, Godwin Sunday, 28, and two females, Anna Samuel, 21, and Better Okorie, 23, were nabbed on Wednesday, April 28, after they allegedly stole N5000 from the victim at the ever-busy Tombia Market in Yenagoa Local Government Council.

According to the teenage girl, she was standing by the roadside close to the market, waiting to board a tricycle that would take her home after buying all she needed when the three-member gang accosted her and collected her money in broad daylight.

 

“After they collected the money I raised an alarm that drew the attention of the vigilante. I didn’t even know that they were around. It was at that point I saw them chasing the criminals and apprehended them close to the roundabout as they tried to escape.” she added.

Speaking to newsmen shortly after the arrest, the chairman of the State Vigilante Service, Hon. Doubiye Alagba, used the medium to warn other criminals who operate within the Tombia roundabout axis and other parts of the state to choose a new leaf of life or face the full wrath of the law.

“I am using this medium to call on members of the public to always be vigilant and security conscious of their environment at all times. It is only by so doing you can quickly notice the presence of criminal elements and avoid being attacked and robbed,” he stated.

 

“We have handed them over to Operation Dou Akpo, a special unit of the Bayelsa State Command of the Nigeria Police force for further investigations and subsequent prosecution,” he added.
