He was arrested in an apartment at the Osayande Estate. Abanara aka Million, allegedly took part in the Lekki, Ikorodu, Festac and Agbara bank robberies (all in Lagos), where his gang carted away millions of Naira, destroyed several vehicles and left several persons, including policemen and a pregnant woman, dead. .
