Operatives from the Shasha Police Station arrested the duo, alongside a taxi driver identified as Godwin George.

According to Punch, Aiyegba and Augustine paraded themselves as operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, while raiding a hotel in Egbeda and extorting money from guests in the facility.

It was gathered that they collected the sum of N50,000 and a laptop from an unnamed guest few weeks back and fled the area in a taxi driven by George.

The suspects ran out of luck when operatives from the Shasha division, who acted on a tip-off, stormed the hotel and picked them up as they were allegedly in the middle of another raid.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, confirmed the arrest, adding that investigations were ongoing.
