Police arrest Lebanese, Nigerian for murder

Police in Lagos on Tuesday said they have arrested a Lebanese and his Nigerian counterpart who allegedly robbed one Aliyu Sanni of 10,000 dollars and stabbed him to death.

The state police command’s spokesman, Joseph Jaiyeoba, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the victim was killed at a hotel in Apapa.

He added that the suspects (names withheld) were arrested on Monday by policemen attached to the Apapa Division.

“The stolen money was however recovered,” the police spokesman said.
Mr. Jaiyeoba further said that a team of mobile policemen attached to Mopol 2 also on Monday killed a suspected armed robber.

He said that the robbery suspect was killed in a shoot-out with the police at Oregun Industrial Estate’s warehouse, while his other accomplices escaped with gunshot wounds.
