The Lagos state police command has apprehended a 19-year-old suspected armed robber identified as Ajayi Lateef.
The suspect teenager was apprehended with a dummy gun, after his gang had allegedly robbed a tricycle at Victoria Island around 1am.
This was confirmed in a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer of the state, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, ordered that the suspect be taken to the State CID, Panti, for further investigation.
