However, they could flee away and hid in Samutprakarn province so the officers had to suddenly follow and hunt them because they were afraid that these Nigerian people flee again.
The Nigerian gang had rented a hotel room and they climbed from their room’s balcony to victim’s room and taking belongings of other guests. They always focused on cash. They immediately checked-out from the hotel before hiding in a small hotel. They had robbed for 8 times in Pattaya during 8 months and the damage cost is 454,800 baht.
However, they would have to be prosecuted according to Thai law on charge of robbery, illegal immigration and overstaying.
