Five Nigerians have been arrested in the United Arab Emirate (UAE) for allegedly robbing a bureau de change in Sharjah.
The suspects reportedly carted away cash of different currency worth Dh2.3 million (N226,182,000).
Sharjah police said the Nigerians, all men, barged into the exchange and smashed the glass barrier between the customers and the staff, stole the money in multiple currencies and fled.
Two employees at the exchange were said to have been injured as they resisted the robbers but one of them succeeded in calling the police.
The fleeing suspects were however arrested within 48 hours after the robbery was committed as the Sharjah police coordinated with forces from Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah and Ajman.
