A suspected robber arrested by the Police for selling stolen items to buyers during heavy traffic

A suspected robber, 22 year old
Timothy Ojomandu who was arrested
by the police in Lagos, said his gang
always sold stolen items to buyers
during heavy traffic at the Tin-Can
Port, Apapa.
According to Punch, Ojomandu was
arrested in the Mile 2 area on Saturday
at about 7pm, while allegedly robbing
with 2 other gang members during
the gridlock, but the other 2 escaped
from the scene.

It was learnt that Ojomandu sneaked
into a truck carrying cartons of
cell batteries, heading for the Ijora
area, and removed two cartons
of the product before he was caught.
The police said the driver of the truck,
Mr. Ajiboye Mogaji, had raised the
alarm during the operation, which attracted policemen attached to the Rapid
Response Squad to the scene.
During interrogation, Ojomandu 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.”
The driver of the truck, Mogaji, on giving
 his statement 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.”
The RRS Commander, Olatunji Disu, said
 the suspect has been transferred to
the state Special Anti-Robbery Squad
for further investigation.
