According to a report by Punchng, they were apprehended along with a taxi driver, Godwin George, by operatives from the Shasha Police Station.

It was learnt that Aiyegba and Augustine were notorious for raiding a hotel in Egbeda and extorting money from guests in the facility. They reportedly paraded themselves as operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos State Command.
