The member of a four-man robbery gang, Nnamdi Onu, passed out when he was hit with the charm he prepared for his victims.

The armed robbery gang he belonged to specialized in attacking unsuspecting commuters at Anthony Bus Stop in Lagos State, then robbing them of valuables.

However on Friday, July 15, the long arm of the law caught up with them. Onu and members of his gang had stormed the bus stop at about 5.45am on that fateful Friday, and started their normal operations. They robbed passengers waiting to board buses to their respective destinations.

According to Vanguard, eyewitnesses said at about 7a.m., they snatched a bag from a lady and were fleeing the scene, when Onu was apprehended by a mob.

He brought out a red amulet from his pocket and threatened to hit whoever got close to him with it.

The mob retreated upon hearing his threat, allowing two members of the gang to escape. However, the police were already on scene, and Onu was apprehended by the police patrol team.

He reportedly slumped when one of the policemen hit him with the charm. Onu spoke while being paraded alongside other suspects at the command.

He said he was a Junior Secondary School 2 drop-out.

“I was lured into morning raid by my friend, Wasiu. I used to be a private guard at a site in Ogun State. The charm was meant for protection, in case of any attack by intruders. If used on anyone, the person will faint but won’t die. There are some that can cause an opponent to run mad, but I decided to use this because I did not want anybody’s blood to be on my head.

Wasiu only invited me to come to Anthony Bus Stop, but he did not tell me he was going for an operation. When I saw them snatching bags from female victims in particular, I could not turn back because I was afraid he could harm me.

I have brought shame to my father, who has already made arrangement for me to start apprenticeship in fashion designing by Monday (today), since I could not conclude my secondary education due to the demise of my mother, who was solely responsible for my education.”

According to the commissioner of police, Fatai Owoseni, the suspect and 43 others, who were all arrested in one month, will be charged to court soon.

Meanwhile, there was palpable tension in Festac Town in the Amuwo Odofin area of Lagos recently, when rumors of a planned robbery filtered in.

On Thursday, July 15, following reports that armed robbers stormed two new generation banks along 4th avenue, banks in the area hurriedly closed down.
