Why I went back to robbery after release from jail-Ex-convict
“I went to Kirikiri Prison in Lagos in 2014 because of motor-snatching crime. It was one boy called Ayeke that deceived me by telling me to go and carry a car for him, saying that he wanted to sell it. When I went to collect the car, I discovered that it was a stolen Sienna car. Ayeke said it was his mother that gave him the car to use in school. He told me to go and bring the car and that one Alhaji would give me money for my sweat.
“I was arrested and eventually sent to Kirikiri prison. I have also stolen Mazda car.
I stayed eight months in prison before my brother perfected my bail. I was arrested on January 14, 2014. It was one boy called Ebuka that taught me how to snatch cars with a filed key. He sells motor parts in Lagos. He did the key for me and I used it to be carrying cars from parks. During the day, I patrol the streets and when I see a car, I test it with my key. If it works, I come back in the morning to carry it.”
