SARS arrests 34-year old mother for allegedly selling guns in Lagos


A 34 year old mother of two, Sarah Emmanuel was arrested in Lagos by the Special Anti-Robbery Squard (SARS) for allegedly selling guns to robbers.

Authorities say Sarah was in the arms-selling business with her friend, Modinat. They often traveled to a border town between Benin Republic and Nigeria where they purchased locally-made guns and re-sold them to robbers.

However, Emmanuel has denied the allegations, stating that only accompanied Modinat to buy arms on just one occasion.

“I was arrested because my friend Modinat escaped. We have been friends for six years. She asked me to accompany her to Idiroko where she told me of her plan to purchase a gun for one Ismaila, her armed robber lover from whom she collected N25, 000. I only accompanied her to Ifonyin once.

I am a widow and my husband, who was an armed robber was killed by police, we were married for ten years but I didn’t know he was an armed robber before he was killed.

If the police release me I will assist them to arrest my friend Modinat,” she said.
