“While confessing to the crime at the task force headquarters at Bolade Oshodi, the suspect revealed that he and his gang members, Tribunal and Abbey of Mushin, had been in the business for over six months. He disclosed that the ban on the operations of Okada in the state made the business a lot more difficult but they still carried out operations at intervals to steal phones and sell to their dealers in Mushin, popularly known as Segun Scatter, Steven Memory, Kalimantan and Ejo.”

Abdulraheem noted that the suspect would be prosecuted.
