I Only Robbed Yahoo Boys – Robbery Suspect

By  | 

A two-man robbery gang terrorising Idimu, Ikotun and Igando areas of Lagos State has been arrested by the men of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Adeniji-Adele Annex.

The suspects, Sunkanmi Emmanuel, aka Federal, 30 and 28-year-old Ahmed Agunbiade, aka Omojoyibo, were apprehended last week in the Igando area while they were reportedly going for a robbery operation.

It was learnt that the suspects specialised in robbing club goers of their belongings, including motorcycles in the communities.

A certain Dotun Ogunsanya, aka Dotman, was also arrested for buying stolen phones and motorcycles from the syndicate while a commercial motorcycle rider, Nurudeen Agbeyewo, was nabbed for allegedly taking Federal and Omojoyinbo for operations.

Speaking with The Punch, Sunkanmi, a native of Ondo State, and father of five, admitted to being a robber and a cult member.

He, however, said his targets were Internet fraudsters (popularly known as ), claiming that he did not rob innocent people.

He said, “I came to Lagos in 1998. I was an apprentice mechanic. In 2003, the government demolished my boss’ shop and he went back to his village. I became a commercial motorcyclist. After some time, it was seized by the police. I joined Eye confraternity in 2015. Our leader bought a gun for me. He is dead now.

“I started using the gun to rob. I would go to clubs on Fridays and mingle with Yahoo boys who spent lavishly there. As they were leaving, I would follow them. On getting to a deserted place, I would point the gun at them and collect their money and phones.

“I usually freed Eye cult members among them once they told me they did not have money. I have collected about six phones and sold them to Dotman. I got to him at Totowu area, where I live. I don’t rob innocent people. It is Yahoo boys who have money that I rob. I use the money I get to take care of my family. I have five children from two wives.”
