Car Thieves Who Unlock  Stolen SUVs With Master Key & Sell Each For N50,000 Say There Nothing Wrong In Stealing & Selling Cars

A 3-man gang who specialises in stealing Honda SUV in different parts of Ondo state has been caught.

The suspects identified as Imafidon Roland, Adeoye Fadamitan Desmond, Olayemi Adeoye and Imafidon Roland, said there was nothing wrong in stealing and selling cars. The gang members have a special key, which they used in igniting the vehicles’ engines, before moving them from where they were parked.

The principal suspect, Adeoye, said he bought a master key purposely to unlock and steal cars parked at market places. He confessed that he sell each of their stolen vehicles for a paltry sum of N50,000. According to him, he usually sells the cars to Desmond and Roland.

He said:

“Anytime I identify a vehicle, which I wish to steal, I would go to the area with my special key. I will take the car to Desmond and he would give me N50,000.”

According to Desmond, who is a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from Osun State Polytechnic, Esa-Oke, the prices at which he buys the cars made him culpable of receiving stolen property.

He said: “I used to repair the cars before selling them to unsuspecting buyers.”

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Gbenga Adeyanju, said that Adeoye specialised in stealing vehicles in Akure, while the duo of Roland and Desmond were in the habit of selling stolen vehicles.

He said:

“The suspects confessed to have stolen the vehicles. Their leader, Adeoye, narrated how they had been perpetrating the crimes within and outside Akure. Efforts are on to arrest other fleeing members of the gang.”

    This is where we are,and how can someone say there is still hope in Nigeria? Well, God will always be God…. but i have a very special advise for Nigerians outside Nigeria,if you have a child or children,train them well and let them know their root because they will be the ones to rescue this part of the World.

    The buyers are also bigger thieves. How can you purchase a whole SUV for 50k?! This one that graduates are the more criminally minded, no industries, no electricity, millions are still being churned out into the labour market…..God help us all. Even those that think they are comfortable, especially those that brought this country to this ugly state will soon lose their sleep because of this menace

    Thanks Mon, for your words of wisdom. Like I said earlier, stealing is in the average Nigerian’s DNA. It’s now gotten to a stage that people display stolen and ill-gotten wealth with impunity and arrogance, without any shame. How low can Nigeria go? I believe that our children growing up abroad can revamp and salvage our country, because the well-trained ones like my children appreciate and value honesty, integrity and hard work. I don’t encourage my children to visit Nigeria, due to the extent of permissiveness and evil going on there. God forbid they hear their American accent and kidnap them, who will pay $2 million dollars ransom to release them? My daughter who’s training to become a medical doctor has visited countries like Panama, China, Uganda (twice though we have no family or friends there), Thailand and South Africa, even went to teach middle school students English in China, while her own parents’ country Nigeria is a no go area. Where is the future and where are we heading in Nigeria?
