The report of Armed Robbers storming a community in Ibadan the Oyo State capital with Point of Sales Machine to dispose residents of their hard earned money has been described as unheard of.
Discussants and guests on the Journalists Hangout on Monday afternoon made this statement in reaction to the report of robbers in their numbers storming the Elesin Olomo community in the Iddo Local Government area of Ibadan Oyo State with POS Machines to dispossess residents of their money due to scarcity of cash.
Babajide Kolade-Otitoju who led the discussion said the robbery is infantile with any money taken from people forcefully leaving an Electronic trail for the Police or any Other investigating agency to easily look into.
He described the robbers as juveniles in the art of robbery who can be likened to Police officers who have been caught extorting money from people through POS Machines who are eventually caught and dealt with.
He said no matter what they do, the proceeds from the robbery will always leave a trail for the Police to catch them.
For his part, Gani Kayode-Balogun said the Police should do the needful by arresting the perpetrators of the robbery through the electronic trail left behind by them.
Discussing further, they said the robbery may also be a case of desperation on the part of the robbers who may have been feeling the pinch due to non availability of cash to Nigerians.
The concluded that whichever way, the Police and Other Security Agencies involved should be able to bring the matter to a decisive conclusion.
