The police in Lagos on Monday announced the arrest of another Lebanese in connection with last week’s murder of one Aliyu Sanni, after allegedly robbing him of $10,000.

The Spokesman of the state Police Command, Mr. Joseph Jaiyeoba, confirmed the arrest of the third suspect in a chat with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

Police sources told NAN that two Lebanese and three Nigerians were linked to the robbery and murder of the bureau de change operator in a hotel in Apapa.
