“I Spent What I Got On Prostitutes” – Suspected Pickpocket

Agents of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command during the weekend captured two suspected pickpockets working in Maryland and Mile 12 areas of the city.

The suspects, Taoreed Ashimiyu, 24, and Kayode Jolaade, 34, were supposedly nabbed in the demonstration by policemen after they had effectively removed three telephones from commuters in various BRT transports.

Upon their landing in the RRS base camp, the twosome allegedly admitted to the wrongdoing, saying that they were specialists in looting commuters in Mile 12 and Maryland.

One of the suspects, Taoreed, who hails from Yemetu, Alawada in Oyo state, said that he spent the proceeds from stealing on prostitutes.

“I have not spent a dime from my proceeds in stealing on anything tangible. I womanise a lot and I spent my monies on both young and old ladies. I smoked indian-hemp and drink all sort of hard drinks,” he said.
Taoreed revealed that before his arrest, he had removed two mobile phones from commuters during a rush at the Maryland bus-stop, adding that his third attempt led to his arrest.
“My accomplice caused my arrest today. Before he joined me at Maryland, I had stolen two phones successfully.

” But when he came around, we had to be moving in pair. People who had known him in the area were monitoring us ,unknown to us,” Taoreed stated in his confessional statement.
