January 26, 2016 – Notorious Armed Robber Confesses: I Joined Eiye Cult Inside Ikoyi Lagos Prison, I Need Business Loan To Quit Robbery
23-year-old robbery suspect Ayodeji Bakare made this bold confession in Lagos yesterday.
The popular aluminum fabricator in Alagomeji area of Yaba Lagos, said he is a member of a 3-man gang that specialised in robbing people with motorcycle.
Read his confession:
“I am an armed robber. We are three in number and we used to do stop and search operation and the total money I have made in armed robbery is N500,000. I started robbing in 2014 when I came out from prison in 2013; I went to Ikoyi prison for some months after being arrested for robbing a whiteman of his phone in Ikoyi Club.
“In prison, some inmates are bad and some are good. The bad ones learn bad things. I joined Eiye Cult in prison, they beat me and gave me water mixed with pepper. They later gave me orientation. When I was leaving prison, they gave me the name of an arms dealer who will give me gun. His name is Segun. You can see the Eiye mark on my body. I used to buy one bullet for N1,000.
“We used to buy like 15 to 20 bullets. If my bullet finishes, I call Segun who is based in Cotonou.”
On how he beats police and Customs checkpoints, he said: “When I collect gun from Segun in Cotonou, I enter motor that does not carry load. They don’t search motor that does not carry load. I have not married but I have a wife, she loves me. If I go to prison she will still wait for me because she waited for me the first time I went to prison.”
Ayodeji promises police to stop robbing if the government can give him business start up loan
