BUSTED: Six suspected cattle rustlers have been apprehended by operatives of the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT). According to reports, the suspects identified as Gani Adeyemi, 29, Kabiru Oladimeji, 50, Alimi Ayodele, 32, Kunle Olasebikan, 45, and Umaru Mohammed, 46, specialize stealing goats in Ondo, Osun, Ogun, Kwara, Ekiti and Lagos States.

The suspects had reportedly carried out several operations in the neighbouring states, where they stole goats, money, phones and jewelry at gun point.

It was gathered that the suspects lured goats with raw white beans following which they would gag the animals and cart them away in the operational vehicles.

During his confession, one of the robbers identified as Ayodele said: “I am married with three children. I stopped at Senior Secondary three and became a bus driver. I started stealing goats seven years ago when armed robbery became very hard in Lagos.

“It was my friend Akube that introduced me into goat stealing. We operated at Osogbo, Oyo, Ilorin, Ijebu. In each of the operations we went home with at least 20 goats. We used to be three in number namely Alimi, Gani, Akube who is still at large. We used to operate at about from 11p.m to 12 midnight along village roads where goats sleep.

“Gani’s role is to drive our operational vehicle, Akube catches the goats with raw beans while Ayo seals the goat’s mouth. Most of the goats sleep on the road. We were challenged by vigilante men at Iyana Oba in Osogbo where they blocked the road and we exchanged fire with them. We sold the goats to one Kazeem at Mile 12 market (Lagos) at N7,000 each. Kazeem is still at large.

“For the 20 goats we got at last operation at Osogbo we got 20 goats and sold 19 for N133,000 and roasted the one that died out of suffocation and celebrated our dinners with it. Out of the N133,000, I paid N20,000 for fuel and N20,000 for vehicle maintenance and shared the balance.

“Kabiru and other members of the gang were however arrested by a police patrol team which also recovered guns from them.”
