SERIES: The Bank Robbery: Mastermind
“6months ago the FBN Dopemu branch was robbed and officials of the bank stated about N300m was stolen on that day by 3 men in MOPOL uniform, about a week later a video went viral on the Internet and TV stations where the Lagos CP was seen killing a local thug and was later arrested at the scene with about N50m. The Police didn’t know how to proceed till they got a mail with tapes that had a recorded phone conversation between the CP and the Local thug he later killed, and a conversation which was between him and one of the robbers whom he also killed at his house. The investigators also went back to his house and lots of stolen properties such as paintings, sculptures and artifacts were recovered at his home. On going through his phone they found texts which convinced them (the investigators) that the other 2 robbers had been killed and their remains well hidden by the now dead local thug.
The CP, sorry, the former CP, now recognised as the Kingpin of Crime in a state he had sworn to Protect the lives and properties of its citizens has been labelled a Traitor as more cold cases of previous heists and murders have been linked to him and his two most trusted bodyguards. With the uncertainty of his involvement with the other resurfacing crimes, the Acting CP has said the law will go hard on this matter as the battle against corruption has hit a landmark and other powerful Nigerians in such acts will soon be caught up with, so it is certain and safe to look forward to an unfavorable verdict for the former CP in Court.
