Investigations by the operative of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), have revealed the death of the operators.

The three-member gang led the police officers where the bodies of the victims were dumped in a septic tank.

Confessional statements obtained from the gang revealed they lured the operators into believing that an Alhaja wanted to buy $10,000 and that when the operators arrived at an agreed location, they were held at gunpoint and made to transfer the sum of N1.6m into an account before they were killed and their bodies dumped into a septic tank.
