The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos Police Command has arrested another set of traffic robbers.

They are Omuyibo Goddey (32), alias Aro Ghetto Boy; Destiny Nwanga (27), alias Aro Smiling God; Ebuka Igwe (23), alias Aro Do or Die.

They were picked up at their converging point at 7 Alhaji Monsuru Street in Ijegun.

Nwanga repairs fuel pump at Ladipo Spare Part Market; Omuyibo works as a welder, while Igwe deals in illicit drugs, the statement added.
