Pictured above is Yemi Adeyemi and Ikudaisi Segun, two members of a notorious 3-man robbery gang terrorizing motorcyclists operating in the Atan area of Ota, Ogun state.
The suspects who specialise in using dusting powder mixed with petrol to sedate and rob commercial motorcycle operators were arrested after they were intercepted by policemen during an operation a few days ago.
In their confession, the suspects paraded by the Ogun State Police Commissioner yesterday said:
”I have built a house. I was into trans-border smuggling activities between Benin Republic and Nigeria. I used to smuggle contraband like turkey and rice until I had a road accident following which I decided to join a robbery gang.” -Yemi Adeyemi
”We have been operating along Atan-Idiroko Road and stole motorbikes from okada operators. We mixed dusting powder with petrol and wrapped the substance with a handkerchief which we used to tranquilise our victims by covering their face with it. Once they fell asleep we would push them off the motorbike and steal it.” – Ikudaisi Segun
The CP assured the members of the public that the notorious robbers would be charged to court.
