May 2nd, 2016 – Deadly Armed Robbery Gang Members Terrorizing Oyo, Ogbomoso & Ilorin Residents Arrested

Teslim Mohammed, a 26-year-old suspected armed robber has told the police in Oyo State how he got a gun from a colleague, attempted to use it to rob but was arrested before carrying out the attack.

Mohammed, who hails from Kwara State, was paraded at the state Police Command Headquarters, Eleyele, on Friday along with Aliu Azeez (28), Olanrewaju Ajayi (23), Kehinde Abiodun (28), Adeleke Adeyemo (28), and Adamu Muhammed (23).

But the state Police Commissioner, Leye Oyebade, said the suspects, who had been terrorising residents of Oyo and Ogbomoso in Oyo State as well as Ilorin in Kwara State, were arrested in their hideout on April 26 by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad based on intelligence report. Confessing to a series of robbery operations his gang had been engaged in, Mohammed said: “I am a native of Ilorin and I had been robbing in Ilorin before.

But it was up to a year since I robbed last before one boy named Tunde brought a gun to me at Agbabiaka area of Ilorin. Tunde asked me to sell the gun.

I called another friend, AZ, and we attempted to use it to rob, but we were unable to operate that day. “I later gave the gun to my colleagues who went with it. But later, I saw policemen who came to arrest me. AZ and Tosin are my friends and we were doing the robbery operations together before we were caught.

I met AZ not quite long ago. It was the arrest of the boy who brought the gun to me and his accomplices that led to my own arrest.” Mohammed also explained how the gang came about arms and ammunition displayed before them.

He said: “All these arms recovered from us were just recently procured. We have not used them.” Mohammed said he embraced robbery because his mother died and his father was unable to take good care of him.

  1. Well thanks to God that you guys have not use any of the guns yet in robbing any innocent citizens now the men on uniforms are going to use the guns on you guys… Case closed.

  2. The one in a blue long sleeves (2nd right) looks more deadly. Hope that should be the one called “Mohammed“.

    Armed robbery crimes is on the rise these everywhere days especially Lagos, Abuja, PH. Then comes another social vice called “Kidnapping“.

    I think the FG should do something about this trends fast before it escalates to a point that, our women cannot peace go to the market and return home with their purchased soup ingredients to cook for their respective families without being robbed of their purchase.

    The big question is… Where are the firing squards we used to have as a final destination of robbers when caught, tried and convicted?

    I take a stroll…

  5. It was up to a year you robbed last yet you were still active in the robbery network, otherwise the”colleague” would not have known you will accept the gun he recently supplied to you.
