Sept 25, 2014 – Picture: Armed Robber Who Shot Pastor’s Mouth Arrested In Abeokuta

According to Crime Reports, the gang members, including Sodiq Asimiyu (21) a.k.a. Nokia, Lekan a.k.a Goddey, Ayo a.k.a. AY, Seun Ojo a.k.a. Sepe, Kassim and Sunday, among others, assembled at a hemp joint at Ojupa area, Oke-Bode, Abeokuta, on May 31, 2014, from where they took off to a robbery operation, using two Bajaj motorcycles.

They succeeded in their moves when they came across a man driving his Nissan X-terra jeep, whom they robbed and dispossessed of his vehicle in front of State Hospital, Ijaye, Abeokuta.

Unsatisfied with the previous day’s loot, the gang took off again with the X-Terra vehicle at about 5a.m. on Sunday, June 1 and moved to Elite area, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, where they blocked a car driven by a Pastor at about 5.50a.m. while on his way to church with his wife and daughter.

A police source further informed Crime Reports that the man was dispossessed of N150,000, a Samsung Galaxy tablet and HTC phone belonging to his daughter, among other items.

Not satisfied, one of the armed robbers who eyed the cleric’s daughter with lust, ordered her to move away from her parents into the church, with the intention to have s*x with her…

On sensing this, the Reverend pleaded with them to spare his daughter since he had surrendered all they wanted to them. In a fit of anger over the pleading, one of the gang members pulled the trigger of his gun and shot the man in the mouth. Not yet done, another member went to their operational vehicle, brought out a bottle of beer, opened it and poured the content on the man of God where he fell. They left afterwards.

Nemesis however caught up with Sodiq when he was arrested on September 11, 2014 when he reportedly came back to Abeokuta for another operation. He was caught with a cut-to-size single barrel gun put in a bag. Also arrested was one Tunde Egunjobi in whose house Sodiq was nabbed.

Both are currently undergoing investigations at the Anti- Robbery section of the State CID, Eleweran, in Ogun State Police Command.

    There is no difference between boko haram and a robber, so jail them for attempted murder.

      The Don, pls go back and read my comments again for a better understanding of what majority of Nigerians are worried about the people of the East. I agreed crimes of all shades and colours cut across all tribes in Nigeria and is widespread in all corners lenght and breath of Nigeria, however; the rate, intensity and frequency at which one particular tribe’s names are recorded in criminality is a course for concern. There’s no doubt there are bad nuts in all tribes but should we not be worried if one specific tribe becomes more notorious in criminalities than others within a given multi-tribal society, when such tribe is not even in the majority as to suggest a greater numerical proportion be reflective in the larger number of marauding criminals from that single tribe.? There are Hausa/Fulani cattle raiders who are also highways robbers and so are Yoruba armed robbers getting arrested everyday, but how often and how frequent,? Where do they operate and how daring are they as compared to others from the East who describe armed robbery as “business” There are no known statistics of arrested Yoruba or Hausa/Fulani armed robbers in the South Eastern Nigeria yet, but majority of armed robbers on the highways and at homes across the entire lenght and breath of Nigerian territory from Lagos to Calabar, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Abuja, Kano, Enugu, Onitsha, Owerri etc. are the people from the East. The people of the South Eastern Nigeria are professional armed robbers no doubt because their operations cut across every nuke and cranny of Nigerian territory. It is as if robbery is in their gene and the only means to start a life if there are no other means available. They get buoyed by their cohorts criminal minded compartriots and even Chiefs are now collaborators in criminal activities of people of the East. Easterners should stop living in denial and self conceitedness and address the real reasons why many more youth from South Eastern Nigeria are running away from classrooms and hiding behind trading across Nigeria to engage in criminalities including armed robbery.
