Segun Taiwo, the arrested member of a two-man robbery gang headed by one Demola, a very powerful herbalist, has told investigators how they stole $10,000, £5,000, N100,000, and a box of jewellery from an 81-year-old woman in Surulere, Lagos State.

According to a statement by the Police on Sunday, the suspect, Taiwo, was arrested by men of the Rapid Response Squad, shortly after robbing the elderly woman at 8pm in her home in Oduduwa Street in Itire.

The police were only able to arrest Taiwo as his accomplice and leader of the gang, Demola, a very powerful herbalist managed to escape.

During his confession at the RRS headquarters in Lagos, Taiwo revealed how they managed to perpetrate the robbery unhindered before the police came to the rescue of the old woman.

According to him, “He (Demola) was treating one of the woman’s daughter (name withheld) who had sore in her right foot.

“Whenever the lady visited him for treatment, he was always stylishly collecting information about her mother from her.

“Unknowingly to the lady, the herbalist had collected all necessary descriptions and information needed to carry out the robbery.

“After a while, he told me that we have a special operation.

“He further told me that his patient (the woman’s daughter) must not be aware because we were going to their house to rob her mother.”

Taiwo in his confession also revealed that Demola has gotten enough information to know when to strike, the description of the apartment, how to locate the woman’s money and where other valuable items were kept in the house.

He said “We carried out the robbery successfully.

“We gained entrance into the two-storey building and headed straight to the old woman’s flat.

“From our preliminary investigation, we got to know that the first flat opposite the entrance gate was theirs. We went straight inside the flat without any stress.

“We met the 81-year-old woman while sitting on the prayer’s mat inside the living room. We dragged and threatened her with cutlass and axe to surrender all her belongings including foreign currencies with her or else we will waste her life.

“She cooperated with us and handed us a bag filled with both local and foreign currencies.

“We also forcefully collected her gold jewellery box.

“However, on our way out, we overheard the voice of the old woman who was crying and shouting for help. Unknowingly to us, RRS operatives who were patrolling the area have overheard her voice.

“As we were rushing out to escape from the house, the operatives sighted us and we took to our heels. Immediately, the policemen made a hot chase which led to my arrest and my accomplice managed to escape with the local and foreign currencies while the jewellery box was retrieved from me.”

Taiwo also made another shocking confession, revealing how they had in the past, robbed a man, along Okota road, of his N200,000, he said “My gang leader is a very powerful herbalist. He knows when you have money on you.

“The first day I followed him to rob was a day when we went to Okota road. On getting there, he saw one man along Okota road, and he pointed at the man and told me the man had money on him.

“We moved closer to the man and he recited some incantations, and to my surprise, that man handed over his money, about N200,000, to us.

“Out of that money, he gave me just N11,000.”

Dolapo Badmus, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, while confirming the arrest, said the Command is making effort to arrest the gang leader, and that the suspect has been transferred to Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) for further investigation.
