The robbery suspect, Teslim Mohammed, had according to the reports, been arrested while planning a robbery attack with his gang members.

Mohammed, who has reportedly blamed his return to the life of crime on the devil, has asked that the police kill him if he is ever caught again.

Speaking with Crime Guard, Mohammed opens up, saying:

"I am from Erin-Ile in Kwara State but live at Sango, Ilorin. I was a drycleaner. It was Tunde who brought a gun to me that he wanted to sell it. I knew Tunde in Ilorin; he was a carpenter. Tunde knew me as a hard guy and we used to meet at hemp joint.

"I called my friend, AZ, to cut it to size, after which we kept it beside a primary school in Ilorin. After that, we attempted to use it to rob at Gaa Akanbi area of Ilorin but we were unsuccessful. Tunde was later challenged and arrested, while we fled. One of us, Solomon, who returned to his residence at Gambari in Ogbomoso, was also challenged by his community members and he was arrested. Tunde brought police to arrest me.

"I was once remanded in prison after we robbed some students in Ilorin. I spent close to a year in prison before I was granted bail. The case is still in court. I got AZ’s number from a prison’s inmate called Tosin. It was AZ who gave me the number of another gang member, Bayo.

"I don’t understand myself; it was the devil’s work that made me do the job. If I am let off the hook, I will never venture into crime again. If I try to commit crime again, the police should kill me after catching me."
