Five Nigerians Arrested For ‘Robbing’ DH2.3m From UAE Bureau De Change

Five suspects arrested for robbery in UAE

The Police in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) say they have arrested five Nigerians who “stormed a money exchange in Sharjah and fled with Dh2.3 million”.

According to Dubai-based newspaper Khaleej Times, the men barged into the exchange and smashed the glass barrier between the customers and the staff, stole the money in multiple currencies and fled.

When converted, the money amounts N225.4million.

Two employees at the exchange were injured as they resisted the robbers, one of them eventually managing to notify the Police.

The paper aid the Sharjah Police coordinated with forces from Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah and Ajman to nab the suspects from four emirates within 48 hours after the robbery was committed.

The incident was reported at Al Ansari Exchange in Al Tawoon area, a top police official saying the suspects came to the UAE on visit visas on March 18.

For two days, they studied the exchange office before deciding to commit the robbery around midnight — just before the shop was to close. On March 20, four suspects stormed into the exchange office, while one waited in a car outside. After the four suspects rushed out with the money, they fled in a car.

Major-General Saif Al Zeri Al Shamsi, Commander-in-Chief of the Sharjah Police, said the whole amount had been recovered.

“The police team reached the site within seven minutes after the robbery was reported,” Khaleej Times quoted the police officer as saying. “The injured staff members were rushed to the hospital, where they were discharged the next day.”

The police lifted forensic evidence from the site and formed a team to crack the case. “Arrest warrants for the suspects were circulated at all ports of the country to prevent them from leaving.”

The police retrieved the number plate of the car in which the suspects fled. One of the suspects was arrested in Sharjah, after which he led the police to the others — two in Ajman, one in Abu Dhabi and one in Ras Al Khaimah.

All the suspects were said to have confessed to the crime.

Some residents of Ikeja area of Lagos State, on Thursday, apprehended a man for allegedly stealing bras and pants from where they were spread.

It was learnt that some residents, who saw the man while allegedly collecting the underwear, accosted him and demanded to know the content of the bag he was carrying.

He was said to have threatened to deal with the people for insulting him, but unmoved by his threat, some youths forced the man to open the bag.

An eyewitness, Bayo Ojo, said when the man finally opened the bag, bras, pants and other clothing items were found in it.

According to him, the crowd asked the man what he wanted to do with the items, but he kept mute.

Ojo stated that before the crowd could descend on the man, policemen came and took him away.

He said, “We were upstairs and all of a sudden, one of us, Tunde, saw a man picking up bras, pants and some clothes that were spread outside.

“When he was done, he looked in different directions to ensure that nobody saw him. As he began walking away with those items, we came down and alerted other residents, who stopped him.

“Rather than being remorseful, the man began threatening that he would deal with us for insulting him.

“When the people asked him to open the bag he was carrying, he bragged that he was going to beat them up. But when the people forced him to open the bag, they were surprised to see bras, pants and clothes in the bag.”

Two days earlier, two young men had been nabbed in Lagos for picking up female underwear from where they were spread.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti, said the incident had not been reported to the police.

He said, “Nothing like that was reported at our end. I called all the divisions in the Area ‘F’; I even called the commander, who also called the divisional police officers one by one, and they said the incident of bras and pants theft by a man had not been reported to them.

“Even if it happened, the people did not report to us.”  (Punch)
