After the shooting with the soldiers, they managed to escape but Judgment got injured while trying to scale through a fence. He went into hiding at his girlfriend house where he was arrested. She led us to where he was and we arrested him.
We recovered a locally made pistol and an expended cartridge. His arrest also led us to Sunday Olubushe, also known as Ajegunle. In the cause of our investigation we discovered that after robbing victims of their phones, they remove their sim cards give it to one Sherif also known as Alakpa, who will then use the SIM card to hack into the victim’s bank accounts and steal their money.

Narrating how he became an armed robber, Judgment, a native of Osun State, but born in Amuloko area of Ibadan said; “I went to learn how to cut hair and six months into it, my boss asked me to go and look for money for my freedom.
I met one Lekan also known as Corporal, who introduced me into armed robbery. We started by stealing motorcycles from where they are parked at night and we will sell them to our buyers. I stole so many bikes within Ibadan with Corporal within a year, before we switched into full time armed robbery. Our first armed robbery after we bought our guns was in Ikeri area of Osun State. We went to rob a man who we learned had a huge sum of money in his house. We went with two motorcycles and we were six men that went for the operation.
“We mobilised and moved to the house, but when we got there the owner of the house used a big iron and hit me on my head and I fell and I started bleeding then I asked my boys to hold the man to the ground then I used a machete found in the man’s house and hacked the man to death before his wife.”
