Operatives of the Special In­telligence Response Team (SIRT), have arrested the ring leader of the group behind the recent bank robbery in Agbara In­dustrial Estate, a suburb of Lagos, which led to the death of a nursing mother and a mobile police officer.

The suspect simply identi­fied as Kelly Rotor was tracked down yesterday and arrested amid heavy
shootout between detectives and three members of his gang at Sapale, Delta State. The shootout also led to the death of a police officer.

Kelly and others were said to have also participated in the Festac, Ikorodu and Lekki bank robberies.

On their arrest, Sunday Sun learnt that IGP Solomon Arase in an attempt to bring the gang to book, drafted the special elite squad to track and arrest the suspects who have held Lagos under siege in re­cent times.

According to sources from the police, Kelly, after getting his own share of the loot trav­elled down to Sapale to attend a wedding where detectives who had been on his trail for some time ar­rested him.

On realizing that the game was up, Kelly and some of his members, who were with him at the scene started shooting at the police. He was later arrested with gun injuries.
