“Jason was arrested when one of his victims spotted him in the area at 5:00 a.m. and alerted the RRS team in the area.

“He has repeatedly confessed to the police that he operated with three other suspects who live in Oshodi and operate in Otedola Bridge from 9:00 p.m. till dawn,” it stated.

It said the gang, which was formed shortly after #EndSARS protests, used daggers and jack knife to rob in traffic and had been involved in many robberies in the area.

The RRS said the suspect’s arrest coincided with the charge by the RRS commander, Yinka Egbeyemi, to his team covering the area to arrest all the criminals.

The squad said the suspect was cooperating with it to arrest other gang members.
