A six-man gang of armed robbers on Saturday reportedly invaded a wedding reception in the Abule-Egba area of Lagos State. They allegedly shot and injured one female guest, after dispossessing guests of valuables, including wedding rings of both the groom and bride.
The incident, according to witness, happened at about 6.45pm when some of the invited guests to the wedding had started leaving. “They used a bus to block the only entrance to the popular event centre located on Olaniyi Street in Abule-Egba before they started dispossessing people of their belongings,” said a witness. The witness added that there was pandemonium in and around the place as soon as the presence of the hoodlums became obvious to guests in the hall.
The criminals robbed the bride and groom of their wedding rings, jewelriy worn by the bride and gift items given to the couple. The robbery lasted for 15 minutes and policemen only got to the crime scene 15 minutes after the robbers had left, only to arrest everyone on sight.
