Rapid Response Squad (RRS) operatives have arrested a self-acclaimed Chairman of pickpockets in Oshodi, Ibrahim Kasali, and 20 other suspects alleged to be involved in stealing and robbing innocent members of public in the area.

The raiding, which took place at about 4:30 a.m. and ended at 6:35 am on Friday witnessed the operatives combing Mosafejo, Bolade, Oshodi Oke, and Oshodi Under Bridge, arresting the hoodlums and social miscreants waiting for early rush to rob passers-by and passengers.

The suspect who is popularly known as ‘Ibrahim Babangida’ of Oshodi, was nabbed during the operation while being chased by passengers of a bus which he boarded to pickpocket.

It was gathered that Kasali is feared by his colleagues for his ruthlessness and popularity. “some of his colleagues earlier arrested gave him out as their leader, and that he is the one who goes around to collect items stolen or snatched from passers-by to sell and share the proceeds to all of them”, our source added.

Kasali, the source noted had been to prison four times, while one of his accomplices also arrested, Ibrahim Yusuph, 18, from Ogun State, was just out of prison for the eighth time.

Upon completion of preliminary screening, four out of 21 arrested suspects, who could provide satisfactory information about their identity, were released.

Some of thee suspects are: Bello Fatai, Oladimeji Ajisafe, Hassan Adeyemi, Jubril Olamilekan and Babalola Ahmed. Others were, Junior Vincent, Rilwan Oyinsola, Sadiq Taofeek, Kazeem Taiwo, Mutiu Rasheed, Ayodele Adeeko and Sola Omonije.

    Pick pockets. They do look the part! But the tittle ” Chairman of the pickpockets’ Association” really shows how shameless these people are. They are just unrepentant thieves but then this is Naija where people thrive on titles so I guess to them Chairman is Chairman and spells importance notwithstanding the questionable venture such person chairs or presides over.
