Man arrested for leading robbery attack on sister in Lagos

The Police in Lagos state on Thursday paraded a 21-year-old barber, John Ige Damilola, who allegedly led a gang of armed robbers to rob his elder sister and her husband in the Ijoko area of the state.

His gang members were said to have raped the maid and almost raped his elder sister, but left her because she was pregnant.

In his confession, Damilola, who claimed he knew about the robbery but was not part of it said, “I was not part of the robbery operation. I am not the gang leader. I operate a barbing saloon in front of my sister’s building. One of those who attacked and robbed my sister and in-law is my customer. My barbing shop is in the same building where my sister lives, but I do not live there.

“I could not speak out because they informed me of their intentions. They came around 9p.m. But I closed my barbing saloon at about 7p.m that day. I was arrested because the people that came to rob my sister and her husband implicated me,” Damilola added.

The state Commissioner of Police, CP, Fatai Owoseni, who paraded the suspect alongside others at the state police command, Ikeja, said the police is on the trail of a fleeing member of the gang and that the ones arrested were helping the police in their investigation.
