"My Father retired has an Robbery Gang-Leader" Armed Robber confesses

Akinola Olarewaju, a 34-year-old man, who was nabbed by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, in Lagos recently, has confessed that his father retired as the leader of a notorious armed robbery gang years back.

Akinola, who was a member of a dangerous Six-man robbery gang before his arrest, also gave the name of the leader of the gang as Femi Enuyemi, aka JJ, who is said to be from Ondo State.

According to him: he joined the gang because he trained as a motor mechanic but could not raise money to buy working tools. His attempt to get his father to assist him did not yield any positive result. And when he turned to his father’s friend, he too was not forthcoming. “Go and do what your father knows how to do best, and you would raise the money to buy working tools,” was the advise he got from his father's friend.

“My freedom came when Femi, aka JJ, visited me and advised me to come and live with him in Ajah, so that I would learn how to become a millionaire without doing much.

That was to mark the beginning of his initiation into armed robbery. At night, his friend and host, JJ, invited the rest members of the gang and asked him to join in the meeting that was to hold. The initiation was simple. JJ told him that he was in the midst of armed robbers and that he would want him to join each member of the group hit Akinola hard on the head and was made to kiss a locally made gun. That was all.

His fourth and last operation was on the way to Epe. He said: It happened that JJ was to do the burial of his paternal grandmother which was to be November 26. It was while on the road to the place that himself and two others were arrested.

Then, men of the Federal Highway Patrol stopped and searched us. They searched everywhere. “They searched thoroughly and turned every bag upside down. When they searched the student bag we put under the seat, they saw three short guns and bundled all of us, including the driver, to Elemoro Police Station. From there, they took us to Ajiwe Police Station in Ajah . He also confessed that “he knew not the driver and the other three passengers. He said that I boarded the car with Emma and Obed as passengers and others were released and we were taken to SARS.”

NOTE: "Femi’s mother and my father are from the same father and mother, so when he called me to come and stay with him, I did not argue. I stayed with him and did whatever he wanted me to do. He also inherited robbery", he stated.

Other members of the gang are Felix Enuyemi (Femi’s brother), aka Askari; Keshi also from Ondo State; Emmanuel Ogbonna, aged 25, from Eziwachi in Afikpo, Ebonyi State; and Obed Odeme from Eziogbaku in Owerri, Imo State.
