On interrogation, the suspects admitted to being involved in all kinds of robbery.
"When we entered people shop, anything you sale we will pack the most costly ones; after which we will asked you to get us water or send you on an errand, that will make us run away with the goods without paying for it. We rob women in Keke, we pick recharge card bags and anything that would fetch us quick money."The suspects are currently in police custody.
