Yusuf, a truck driver that was arrested in the early hours of yesterday in Badagry area of Lagos State, has revealed that he drives a truck by day and turns to a robber at night, “but I do not carry gun” he said.
He was nabbed after a foiled robbery operation and an attempt to r**e his female victim.
It was gathered that the suspect scaled the fence into the building at about 1am, after which he entered one of the apartments where he dispossessed a woman of her valuables.
Not done, he proceeded to another apartment where he met a woman identified as Mrs Akanbi. In an interview with Vanguard, Mrs Akanbi said:
I woke up around 1am to find an unknown person in my kitchen with a knife. Unknown to me, he had been to my bedroom where he collected my phone and the only N100 I had at home. Immediately I asked who he was, he grabbed my hand and dragged me outside, threatening to kill me if I raised alarm. On the way out, I discovered that the gate was opened, including my door. I begged him not to hurt me, that the only thing I had was the N100 note and my phone. To my shock, he said I should allow him have s*x with me quietly, since I had no money. At that point, I ran out and called for help. It was then I realised that my neighbour, whose house the suspect had earlier gone to, were looking for the intruder. He was eventually caught and handed over to the policemen at Badagry Division.
