The suspects robbed several banks, carted away millions and killed over 30 people, including nine policemen.
One of the kingpins, identified as Michael Adikwu, a police constable, who was tried and dismissed by police authorities, has been arrested.
Adikwu was arrested on Monday by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police, Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT) and later used as bait to catch two other kingpins.
Speaking on Adikwu, a police source disclosed: “He used to serve in the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Kwara State Police Command until he got involved in robbery. Investigations revealed that some armed robbers, who robbed and killed an innocent citizen were arrested.
Adikwu, then a constable, collected money from them and released them. He was subsequently arrested, tried and dismissed. He was charged to court together with the re-arrested armed robbers. He served three years in prison. How he came out of prison is still a mystery.”
