A 9-month-old pregnant woman and two other men have been arrested by the Edo State Police command for alleged robbery.
The suspects identified as Jumoke Akanbieme, Osagiede Izevbokun and Godfrey Okonide, were arrested after their operation failed.
Luck ran out of them when a man driving a Toyota car stopped to help the woman (Jumoke) who was pretending to be in labour, the other two attacked him and forced him to drive to upper Sakpoba road where they will snatch the car and dismantle the parts in order to sell it.
It was then that the police from Ugbekun Division ran into them and arrested them.
The police command’s public relations officer, Chidi Nwabuzor, confirmed the arrest saying many cars have been snatched by the syndicate in the same manner.
When interrogated, the pregnant Woman claimed she was lured into the crime by her man.
