Police in Dubai have busted a gang of five Nigerians that robbed the Al Mustaqbal money exchange of Dhs275,000 (N13 million), including various foreign currencies.

According to Dubai news website GulfToday, Brigadier Sheikh Sultan Al Nuaimi, deputy Ajman Police chief, said that the incident took place last week when the gang members entered the exchange, assaulted its employees, threatened them with toy guns before emptying the premises of its cash and fled.

The gang members entered the country on a visit visa, which reportedly expired long time ago.

He added that the police operations room received a call about the robbery at around 10.30 pm last Thursday.

However, the suspects managed to escape before the police arrived on the scene, as the employees failed to activate the alarm in order to alert the police.



Lt Col Abdullah Saif Al Matroushi, director-general of CID at Ajman Police, said that police formed a special team to investigate the case.

"The police team used sniffer dogs to trace the movement of the suspects and found the shirt of one of the suspects and a toy gun used in the crime.

"The police also used the footage obtained from surveillance cameras installed at the exchange house and the street, which assisted in revealing their car plate number and its description."

In cooperation with the Sharjah and Dubai Police, the team managed to identify the suspects and their location.

The suspects confessed to the crime and were referred to the Public Prosecution.
