The suspects who were tracked down with a phone they abandoned during the operation last week admitted to the crime, but however alleged that the gang leader whose whereabouts is unknown was responsible for raping women.

Here’s the confessional statement by Otu;

“We usually operated at midnight when all occupants were asleep.  In this case at Lugbe, we operated in three houses.  The first apartment we entered,  the man we met  said he had no money . We only collected  phones  and laptops.

“In the second house, we saw a fat woman breastfeeding her baby. Like the first apartment,  she and her husband  said there was no money and we collected their phones. At that point,  our boss,  Osas, told us to go outside . By the time we came back, he was till fondling  with  the nursing mother’s  breast , while one of us was  fingering her. The woman was just begging them to leave her alone.

“From there , we  went to a third house  where a fair complexioned woman was raped by Osas. He took her  from where she was on the bed with her husband, to the sitting room and asked us to remain In the bedroom with the man. By the time he finished, he called us inside.

“I joined the gang six months ago because of lack of job. I am an apprentice in a barbing saloon. But my boss traveled and locked the shop.  At the end of each operation, Osas, would sell the stolen phones and laptops and share the money among us.  I usually got between N20,000 and N50,000 at the end of each operation,” Otu said. 

31 year-old Ikechukwu confessed that his role was to finger the women.

He admitted that he was the one who fingered the nursing mother on the order of their gang leader simply known as “Osas”.

Ikechukwu alleged that on two robbery occasions he was involved in, Osas raped their female victims before their husbands.

“I am not the person that raped the women. What I did was to finger one of them. I was ordered by leader of the gang, Osas, to finger her, while he fondled with her breasts.  He always raped women and if he wanted  to do it, he would order us to leave the place . I have gone on operation with him twice. On both occasions, he raped the female victims even before their husbands.

“I left Lagos for Abuja in January 2019 , after I stopped work at Dangote Refinery . But a financial challenge came my family’s way , after my younger brother was involved in an accident. He had a nail pierced into one of  his eyes and needed to undergo  surgery that  would cost N200,000.

“On arrival in Abuja, I shared my problem with Osas  , whom I met through my friend,  Tochukwu.  He promised to assist me raise some money. On a particular day, he invited me, Tochukwu and another person out. We went for an operation and at the end, he gave me N100,000 from the money realized from the sale of stolen phones and laptops.  We usually scaled the fence and broke the burglary with an iron bar,” Ikechukwu said.

25 year old Ebuka admitted that his gang violate female victims, but he does not involve in the act.

According to him, he only followed them to watch how they rob.

“I knew they were going to rob.  I only followed them to watch how they operated.  When we got there, they gave me some  laptops they collected from victims’  apartment . All I did  was to put them  inside the bag we went there with .  I was into  business before I came to Abuja, from Kaduna state”, he said.

Osueke who is the oldest person among the gang alleged that he had already quitted robbery 3 months ago because he didn’t like the job, but investigations however led to his arrest. “I used to follow them to  previous operations.   But I  had to leave the gang  because I  did not like the job. When I left, I went into  drilling of borehole. ” I did not follow them  to the operation that led to their arrest.  When  they  returned,  Ikechukwu told me to go and help him buy sim card because he misplaced his phone on the operation ground. Two days after I bought him the sim card, policemen tracked   me through the  sim card,” Osueke said.
