‘Robbers Pay Me N7,000 For Information’—Suspect

A robbery suspect, who was recently nabbed, has told the police how he gathers and gives out information to armed bandits and collects N7,000 per operation.

A robbery suspect, who was recently nabbed, has told the police how he gathers and gives out information to armed bandits and collects N7,000 per operation.



The suspect, Yusuf  Balogun, 22, a native of Abeokuta, resides in a village near Badagry. Nemesis caught up with him alongside two of his accomplices, when they attacked a business centre and carted away a huge amount of money and other valuable items.


Confessing to his crimes, he said: “I am a furniture maker but I am so stubborn that I had to drop out of secondary school in SS2. I started roaming the streets, smoking Indian hemp, cocaine and cigarettes with friends and patronising prostitutes.


“It was through this way of life that I became a reliable informant to armed robbers. We have a joint where we normally meet. I monitor places for the armed robbers and tell them how to go about the operation.


“For each operation, I am paid N7,000. It depends on where they tell me to keep my eyes on. On the day I was arrested, I was contracted to monitor for the two armed robbers and I did just that. After the operation, when they were caught they mentioned my name.” The Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, Superintendent Frank Mba, confirmed the incident.
