Robbery suspect relates why it’s easier doing business in Ghana than in Nigeria


A trans-border robbery suspect has told the‎ Lagos State Police that it was easier for him to operate in Ghana than in Nigeria because citizens of the latter are more security conscious.

Dennis Wasami, 32,‎ was arrested by men of the Rapid Response Squad in his hideout at Agbonle Orile on Saturday, the police said in a statement Tuesday.

The suspect was held in Kirikiri prison last year after he was arrested for a burglary incident in Festac Town‎.

“I used to bring the stolen items to Nigeria to sell. I have a ready market for them in Lome and Lagos.
