Last Friday in Abia State capital City; Umuahia, two young thieves were arrested for robbery.



The suspects who specialise in agency bankers popularly known as PoS operators attacked a woman with a gun and cast away with her money.

They are between the ages of 19 and 20, Onuoha Chukwuyere Raymond (M) and Chukwuemeka Azubuike (M)

The robbers disguised themselves as customers when they approached a POS operator, Mrs. Mbila Goodness around Amuzukwu Girls Secondary School Umuahia.

According to Goodness, the robbery suspects had requested a withdrawal of N1000 and N500 both of which came out 'insufficient funds'.

She said they pointed a gun at her, warning her not to raise the alarm as they made away with the sum of N130,200.

In the meantime, ran out of the suspects as she raised an alarm, calling the attention of passers-by and the police in the area.
