December 19, 2016 – Pictures: 2 Brothers Who Wore Masks To Rob Neighbour In Ota Ogun State Arrested
Rilwan Iyiola, a 21-one-year-old undergraduate of a university in Osun State said he created a route to the attic of his neigbhours’ apartment a day before he and his brother, Kazeem Iyiola, 19, robbed the victims.
The 200-level student of Political Science, said he was desperate to raise money so he could go to another institution because the course he was studying presently was allegedly forced on him.
The victims were identified as a couple, Oluwafemi Imafidon and Yetunde, who lived with the suspects on Oluwole Fagbote Street, Ota, Ogun State.
We learnt that the brothers, who wore masks, stormed the couple’s apartment around 2am on Thursday, wielding cutlasses. They reportedly asked the victims to submit their laptops and other belongings.
Oluwafemi was said to have resisted the suspects’ request which resulted in a struggle between him and one of the brothers.
“I struggled with one and was able to push him to the wall, while the other cut me with a cutlass. Despite the blood coming out from my body, I kept struggling with him. I succeeded in removing the mask he used. That was when I realised he was my neigbour. He and his accomplice, who later turned to be his brother, eventually escaped. They came in through the attic of the store,” Oluwafemi, who is receiving treatment in a hospital in the area told our reporter.
