Feb 22, 2016 – Picture: Jumia Store Keeper & Driver Arrested For Aiding Robbery At Festac Lagos Warehouse

The officials of Lagos State police command have smashed the gang that allegedly robbed the Festac branch of a popular online retailer, JUMIA, last October.

It was busted following a tip-off received by the Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB) that a member of the gang identified as Ogaga Pemu had arranged with someone to service his operational German pistol marked DO-94894891-COLT, and also provide magazines for the weapon.

Pemu was tracked and arrested at Joe Baddy Hotel in Mende, Maryland.

He allegedly confessed to a series of armed robberies in Lagos including the October 29 attack on the online firm’s warehouse in Festac where the gang looted N1.2 million cash, phones, laptops and clothes.

Pemu’s confession led to the arrest of two siblings, Yohanna and Hosea Daniel who worked for JUMIA as store keeper and driver.

According to Pemu, Yohanna provided his gang information on JUMIA in exchange for N200,000.

He said: “We were six that participated in the robbery. Myself, Daniel the store keeper and his older brother, Hosea. Don Domie, Chris and another guy.

“We got N1.2million. I gave Hosea N400,000 for him and his brother. Their share was N200,000 each. I took N250,000, gave Don and Chris N200,000 each and gave the other guy who was a new person N150,000.

“That operation was my fourth. I was arrested first and then I told the police how to get them and they were also arrested. But the other members have fled.”

Parading the suspects on Friday, Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni said two locally made pistols, two cartridges and a locally-made magazine with two .9mm live ammunition were also recovered from the gang.

He said a laptop was also found with them, adding that investigation was on to arrest the fleeing members.

    But make sure that the people you are implicating are your partners in the same crime. Don’t just implicate them because you want them to suffer with you for what they don’t know.

    The young men of nowadays are very wicked. Why will you work for someone and go behind his back to plan an armed robbery attack conniving with other bandits to come and rob your working place where you make your daily bread. What next do you want when you finish spending 200,000 Naira that you received for betraying your boss?. I bet you that little share that you received will never solve your problem instead it’s going to compound it. People like you are the ones that making it difficult for other people who are just looking for a job to make an ends meet.
