April 5, 2016 – Bus Driver Who Robbed Passenger To Pay Sick Child’s Hospital Bill Arrested In Benin City

Benin Police officials have paraded a commercial cab driver, Clement Ogunsola, who was arrested for armed robbery.

Oginsola who was paraded alongside other suspects arrested for various crimes, at the Edo Command headquarters of the police Monday, explained to journalists how he used an iron rod shaped like a small gun, to dispossess his passenger of her mobile phone and the sum of N18,500 cash.

He said he did that to raise money to discharge his sick child who was admitted and treated for spleen related problem at an unnamed government-owned hospital.

The suspect disclosed that his victim was one of the two market women who boarded his car at about 6:00 am at Oluku, a small town close to Benin, and were heading to Odighi village, along Benin-Akure Road, in Ovia North-East local government area of the state.

But instead of taking his passenger to Odighi village, the suspect said he stopped at Ugbogiobo village, where he pointed his self-made gun at his victim and dispossessed her of her handbag where the money and phone were kept.

He confessed to have used N16, 500.00 to offset the hospital bills while N2, 000.00 was spent on the car.

Items recovered from him included a gun-shaped iron, the woman’s bag where the money was allegedly kept and a phone.

Edo Police spokesman, DSP Abiodun Osifo, said the suspect would be charged to court for armed robbery.

  1. Mchew, dumb soul. You see ur life? Cheap thief. Not enough excuse to rob. For you to have that has a gun, if you see real gun you go do more.

  2. He must face the repercussion of his action, no mercy. What if the victim was also taking that money to go settle a more life threatning case like, her son or the husband if married, in the theatre for an urgent operation or die?

    Or what if she was taking that money to one of her parents or a close relative that needed it badly or die?

    Situation can force a man to do the unthinkable especially when faced with no option but that does not give anyone the right to rob, steal, embezzle public funds, kidnap, ritual killing for money, dupe, 419ing. Defraud, scam etc…

    This may not be his first time and if this man is let go, he may think that, if he could succeed to rob with a forged fake gun, with a real gun, he could do more.

    My strolling continues….

  3. In as much as I pity his condition but I can’t condone his crime. He should have gone begging for money instead of stealing

  4. He is a stupid man,instead of him to use the bus to make money,he turn himself into arm robbers…..He will rot in jail

  5. This is stupidity. He should have begged for money from his relatives, friends or even from his pastor. I don’t know why people think stealing is the easiest way to solve their problems. Now you will vomit the money and even pay extra to bail yourself.
