An 18-year-old traffic robber, Samuel Adetomi, has been nabbed by the Decoy Team of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in a sting operation around Otedola Bridge and Ojodu–Berger, last week Friday, November 26.
The suspected robber during interrogation disclosed his father fortified him with charms before leaving Abeokuta for Lagos.
He disclosed that several diagonal incisions all over his body, as well as the ring found on his toe, were part of the fortification his father made him go through before leaving Abeokuta for Lagos.
When interrogated, he revealed that he sells bottled water in traffic and robs at night, adding that he sleeps under Ojodu – Berger footbridge at night.
He was in the company of about four other suspects, trying to rob a motorist when he was arrested.
While his three other colleagues who sighted the plain cloth officers on time escaped, Adetomi couldn’t make out of the scene on time, hence, his arrest.
It took more than six policemen to subdue and handcuff him at the scene.
