A member of a four-man robbery gang, Nnamdi Onu, passed out when he was hit with the charm he prepared for victims. His gang specialised in attacking commuters at Anthony Bus Stop in Lagos State, disposing them of cash and valuables. He was arrested, Friday, following a foiled operation. Onu and members of his gang stormed the bus stop at about 5.45a.m., where they robbed passengers waiting to board buses to their respective destinations.
Eyewitnesses said at about 7a.m., they snatched a bag from a lady and were fleeing the scene, when Onu was apprehended by a mob. He was said to have brought out a red amulet from his pocket and threatened to hit whoever got close to him with it. The mob retreated out of fear, thereby making way for two other members of the gang to escape. Unfortunately for Onu, he was apprehended by a team of policemen on patrol. He was said to have slumped when one of the policemen hit him with the charm.
