Two suspects, Chidi Umeh and Obinna Onyebuchi, have been arrested for allegedly stealing motorbikes in Ogun State.
Chidi confessed to always coming from Nnewi, Anambra State, to steal motorcycles in Owode Yewa.
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said they were members of a robbery gang who specialized in drugging their victims before dispossessing them of their motorcycles.
On interrogation, Chidi explained that he is selling motorcycle parts in Nnewi and he used to come to Owode area to snatch motorcycles from the owners after drugging them through energy drink, which he used to give to his victims on a friendly note.
His accomplice, Obinna, corroborated his confession. Oyeyemi disclosed that their last victim was still sleeping when the suspects were arrested after some observant residents raised an alarm.
