A suspected four-man robbery gang who allegedly specialized in robbing pedestrians and motorists were arrested by the Lagos State Police Command.
“We Pray To God To Bring Only Sinners Our Way”
One of the robbers explained that the prayer was to ensure that only ‘sinners’ would be dealt with by the gang, while the ‘innocent’ would be spared
The ‘religious’ suspects confessed to reporters they usually prayed to God before embarking on an operation.
The suspected robbers, Mutalubi Abdullahi, Ismaila Moruf, Opeyemi Akinyemi and Sarah Emmanuel, were arrested for robbing early morning pedestrians and motorists in the Mile 2 area of the state.
One of the robbers, Abdullahi, explained that the prayer was to ensure that only ‘sinners’ would be dealt with by the gang, while the ‘innocent’ would be spared.
Reports from the Punch say the gang operated on local motorcycles popularly known as okada and used locally made guns to rob.
29-year-old Abdullahi from Igbeti, Oyo State, said he and other members of the gang were driven into robbery by poverty. He said they were careful to rob only those who deserved to be robbed.
