A member of a three-man robbery gang, Goodness Allison, has disclosed that his members disguise as policemen and military officers to impound motorcycles, popularly called Okada, which they sell.
Allison, 31, from Idda Local Government, Kogi State, stated that the gang, comprising Wilson, Aboki and himself, have collected over seven motorcycles from riders in Ejigbo, Ikotun and Bucknor.
He disclosed that they operate from 9p.m. to 11p.m., and “normally meet in Isheri Junction. Wilson dresses like soldier. He wears military polo, long sleeves with camouflage trousers and black shoes. Aboki wears black pullover with black trousers and shoes.
“I was co-opted into the team two weeks ago. Then, I was arrested at Bucknor by Wilson and Aboki at about 9:48p.m. They said I took restricted road. I pleaded with them to let me go, but they told me that I was going to take them somewhere.
“I took them to Ejigbo, where I helped them to arrest an Hausa boy and we took his okada. I do not know what they did with it, but the following day they called me and offered me N10, 000.
“It was at the same spot where I seized my first okada that I was c@ught, beaten and arrested.”
