A 16-year-old armed robbery suspect, Sunday Ojo, nicknamed after Nigeria’s notorious armed robber, Oyenusi, has said that he had been involved in no fewer than 40 operations in Ondo State.
Ojo was arrested by the state’s security outfit codenamed ‘Amotekun’ alongside two other notorious armed robbery suspects who caused mayhem in the state.
They include Timileyin Femi, aka ‘Anini’, 13 years old and Matti Lowe, aka ‘Osunbo’,16 years.
Sunday, who was sent to a juvenile home when he was arrested last year by the state Amotekun, said that he has been involved in over 40 operations.
In an interview after he was re-arrested by the Amotekun corps, and paraded in Akure, the state capital, Sunday said that “l have lost count of the robbery operations I have been involved in. But they can’t be fewer than 40.”
He claimed to be overwhelmed by evil spirit that motivates him to steal.
The state Commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, said that Sunday was a second-time armed robbery suspect.
Adeleye added that the suspect, who was arrested for illegal possession of firearms when he was 13 years old and sent to juvenile home, was again arrested for burglary and stealing.
