The son of a former senator has been arrested following alleged robbery charges.

The young man, identified simply as Ola Kila, has been remanded in prison following his alleged involvement in an Abuja robbery.

According to reports, the former senator’s son, who hails from Ekiti State, led a gang of armed robbers to rob a Colonel (names withheld) at Mbora Estate by Jabi District, where his AK-47 and other valuable items were removed.

The source disclosed that the robbery operation which took place on the July 5, 2013, resulted in the arrest of the ex-senator’s son.

The source said in the process of investigation operatives from the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, working on a tip-off subsequently arrested Ola Kila and while a search was conducted in his house around Life Camp area, Abuja, 16 live cartridges and some other incriminating exhibits were recovered from the suspect’s house.

During interrogation, it was discovered that the suspect allegedly belong to a notorious armed robbery gang that has been terrorizing the FCT and its environs.

The suspect reportedly told investigators that his friend, an Igbo boy whom he knew to be a member of a robbery gang brought the gun and the cartridges to his house and that the boy has gone back to the East with the intention of bringing more arms and ammunitions.

Ola Kila, however, denied participating in the robbery attack on the Lt. Colonel’s house at Mbora Estate on the day in question.

He confirmed however, that the said Ibo boy brought two laptops robbed at gun point to him, which he sold in the GSM Village, Abuja. He also alleged that the said Ibo boy robbed a man at Life Camp and shot him sometimes in May this year.

The suspect and another member of his gang were last week charged for false information at Area Magistrate court, Karu by the magistrate who ordered that they be remanded at Keffi and Nasarawa State Prisons.
