A robbery suspect who was arrested alongside his colleague by operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Adeniji-Adele Annex, has disclosed that they only robbed yahoo boys.
The suspects – Sunkanmi Emmanuel, aka Federal, 30 and 28-year-old Ahmed Agunbiade, aka Omojoyibo who reportedly specialized in robbing club goers of their belongings, including motorcycles in the communities, were arrested last week in the Igando area while they were reportedly going for a robbery operation.
The police officers also arrested one Dotun Ogunsanya, aka Dotman, for buying stolen phones and motorcycles from the syndicate while a commercial motorcycle rider, Nurudeen Agbeyewo, was nabbed for allegedly taking Federal and Omojoyinbo for operations.
However one the arrested robbery suspects, a 30-year-old father of five disclosed that they only robbed yahoo boys and not innocent people.
“I started using the gun to rob. I would go to clubs on Fridays and mingle with Yahoo boys who spent lavishly there. As they were leaving, I would follow them. On getting to a deserted place, I would point the gun at them and collect their money and phones.
“I usually freed Eye cult members among them once they told me they did not have money. I have collected about six phones and sold them to Dotman. I got to him at Totowu area, where I live. I don’t rob innocent people. It is Yahoo boys who have money that I rob. I use the money I get to take care of my family. I have five children from two wives.” he said.
