Our correspondent gathered that 22-year-old Ojomandu was arrested by the police in the Mile 2 area on Saturday at about 7pm, while allegedly robbing during the gridlock.
He said, “I belong to a gang, and we robbed pedestrians and motorists during the peak period of traffic congestion in the Mile 2 area. I was a bus conductor before our leader, one Victor Chibowu, introduced me to robbery.
“We usually sell all our stolen goods to buyers in the Tin-Can Island area. One of them is Mr. Gawo. He has shops in the Tin-Can Island area. It was the gang leader who usually took the goods to him after each operation.” So unbelievable…Continue to read what he has to say
The driver of the truck, Mogaji, said he observed Ojomandu from the side mirror of the truck as he (Ojomandu) was sneaking into his truck.
He said, “When I saw him sneaking into my truck, I pretended as if I did not see him. While inside the truck, he passed one carton to his partner who was moving beside the vehicle. As soon as I saw him passing it, I rushed down on motion.
“When the other gang members noticed me, they ran away with the product. While the suspect wanted to run away too, I held him by the trousers, while I shouted for help. Policemen patrolling the area then showed up at the scene.”
