The Bayelsa State Police Command has paraded two suspected armed robbers caught while trying to steal from bank customers during the Christmas celebrations in Yenagoa.
One of the suspects was said to have won a jackpot of N4m from a popular football lottery firm about three weeks earlier, before he was arrested over his involvement in armed robbery.
According to sources, the suspect was also a popular member of a cult in the area.
The sources, who said they were surprised by the development, noted that they were expecting the young man to use the money he had won to start a business or trade.
They added that they were surprised that his N4m was already gone.
The two robbers were arrested on Christmas Eve at Swali, a suburb of Yenagoa, near a popular new generation bank in the area.
The two robbers waited for customers to withdraw money from the bank before attacking them.
They were, however, unlucky as they were apprehended while they were committing the crime.
