When interrogated, Yinusa said he went to rob at a nightclub in the Igbobi area of the state so he can raise money to secure the release of his other gang member who is currently being held at the Kirikiri prison.

 

 

 

Yinusa was arrested at a nightclub in Igbobi while attempting to rob the club supervisor. Armed with a locally made shot gun, 4 live cartridges, a socket wrench, a chisel and a plier, Yinusa attempted to rob the night club supervisor but was apprehended.

 

 ?I robbed to raise money to bail my gang member from Kirikiri prison?- Suspect tells RRS

 

When interrogated, Yinusa said

 

 

 

“Prince Chika, currently serving prison sentence in Kirikiri for robbery, called me last week to help him hassle around for funds to secure his freedom from prison. I have visited him in the prison a week ago and he had called me from prison to appeal for my assistance. He gave me the location of this gun and some of the arms he used.

 

He has assured me to pay back within the first few weeks of regaining freedom. I retrieved all these arms from the bush where he kept them before heading for the operation. He told me that he bought the gun in Anambra State for a sum of N5000. Yesterday was the first day I would fire a gun during an operation. Everybody had already left the club in Morocco Road, Igbobi when I scaled the fence. I saw the supervisor, and at gunpoint, I requested for his wallet.

 

I felt he was wasting time, so, I shot him but he dodged it and raised alarm. I was escaping when I ran into a patrol team of RRS men responding to distress noise. I was a pickpocket and a burglar before venturing into robbery. Last week, I broke into three houses in Somolu. From each of the houses, I collected two mobile phones of my victims. I also got three laptops as well as jewelry. I sold them to Adamu Jubril.

 

Whenever, I collect ATM cards from victims, it is Korede Baki (22) that assist me in doing the withdrawals. I collected the PIN along with the ATM card at gun point.”

 

Also arrested with the suspect were the receivers; Jubril Adamu and Korede Baki. According to Jubril Adamu, popularly called Ango, a trader in Tejuosho Market, Yaba,

 

 

 

“I have been buying stolen items from Yinusa for over six months now. I have bought over 15 mobile phones, laptops and jewelry from him. I bought laptops from him at N30,000:00 each.”
