March 31, 2017 – Pictures: Armed Robbery Gang, Yahoo Boys Who Specialized In Buying Phones Online & Robbing Delivery Men Arrested At Olamulti Hotel In Iba Ojo Lagos

RRS operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested four suspects who specialise in tricking sellers of expensive mobile phones pretending to be online buyers and thereafter rob the sellers at the point delivery.

The suspects, Wilfred Ehis, 30; Bright Eloho, 24, Emeka Egbemedu, 22 and Olanrewaju Kamilu, 33 were arrested on Wednesday evening in Olamulti Hotel, New Site, Iba, Ojo, Lagos.

The gangs had on 7th march, 2017 shot one Sgt. Garba Kadiri, an RRS operative while attempting to evade arrest when they were tracked down by the officers in Pretty Street, Iyana School, LASU – Iyana Road.

The RRS operatives, working on reports from victims of the same robbery perpetrated by the gang, had tracked Ehis and his gang to a location in Iba, where the gang shot the officers before escaping.

According to Ehis, a Chemical Engineering graduate of University of Benin, Ekpoma, Edo State,

“what I do is shop online for expensive phones and goods. I request the sellers to make home delivery.

I would send the delivery address to the seller. When the seller gets to the address, he would call me and I would control my boys to go to the delivery address and rob the seller”.

He stressed, “that is my role. I shop online. Send the delivery address to the seller and make sure he is at the delivery address, then control the boys to collect the ordered items from him.

I don’t follow them to the robbery scene. It is only Nurudeen, alias “Onyeabo” that I know carry out the execution. I know he has a locally made short – gun. And, I am aware he had recruited other boys to join him in the robbery”.

“All I do is stay in hotels. I don’t even go out at all. I am always indoor. They do the robbery, sell the phones and give me, my own share of the deal.

Nurudeen is always in hiding. He doesn’t come outside since SARS, Lagos picked up his closest friend last year. He is short in size and he sneaks into Lagos mostly at night through the creeks from Ogun State”, he disclosed.

Sources stated that Ehis has several gangs who do his runs for him. The source added that he was into internet fraud and ATM point robbery.

The source added that, Ehis before his arrest stood at different ATM points in Igando, Ojo, Alaba and Apapa to monitor ATM users, who withdrew money, and that he controlled his gangs, who operate on mostly on motor cycle(okada) to trail the withdrawers and collect the money from them.

After his arrest, about five victims from Computer Village in Ikeja have besieged RRS headquarters to give information about the operation of the gang.

Two of such victims who came forward on Thursday were Oluwaseyi Sunday and Alabede Habib.

Both of them in separate statement stated that Wilfred Ehis, pretending as Barrister Deji had sometime in February 2017 requested that expensive phones be delivered to him on two different addresses on LASU – Iyana Iba Expressway. The victims were later robbed by three of Ehis’s gang members operating on motor cycle at the delivery points.

The sellers claimed they lost N800, 000:00 and N450, 000:00 in the robbery.

Items recovered from Ehis when he was arrested were a Tecno Cq phone, an LG 3 Phone; One I mobile phone; 2 Wrist watches, a Canon camera Eo87D; 1 neck lace, 1 Sony laptop, a rap of Indian Hemp and an ash colour Altima salon car, with the registration No. APP 493 EH.

  1. These r thoroughly HARDENED & DEADENED criminals!!! I only pray that, even now, the love of Christ reaches them . . ..

  2. Mr Jw, you better refrain from saying these robbers saw the mercy of your lord Jesus. Even if Jesus himself happened to be one of the delivery men, he would be robbed and killed. So stop praying in mercy tones for these criminals.

  3. When these deliveries online shopping started the first question I asked my husband will this type of shopping be successful in Nigeria he said he is not very sure. These are the type of people who are bringing down the progress of Nigeria.

  4. Lazy bums. Now disgracing their families in public. Instead of thinking about inventing something or go farming, stealing and fraud are the most viable options to most Nigerian youths nowadays. Parents don’t question the sources of their children’s sudden wealth or income any longer. Now they have to live with the shame their children are bringing upon them. Even a fake “woli” is among them and the one wearing a Gucci top. Gucci does not appreciate or welcome your free advertisement, Mr Criminal. Go now and face the consequences of your actions, end of matter. I pray it’s not too late to rehabilitate them, for the sake of their mothers who labored to deliver them and rejoiced that God gave them male children the day they were born. Lord, have mercy.
