A  22-year-old, suspected leader of an armed robbery gang, Mutiu Rasheed, shocked Policemen in Lagos, Nigeria, when he confessed that his parents were fully aware that he was an armed robber.

Rasheed, who is now in police custody along with two members of his gang, Ahmed Musiliu and Sodiq Dada, according to the police, has been terrorizing residents Isheri-Berger in Lagos State as well as some neighbouring communities in Ogun State until they were nabbed by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), on February 5, 2015.

According to the police report, during interrogation, the suspects were said to have confessed to have organised robberies during which many vehicles were stolen, including a Toyota Highlander, a Toyota Camry and a Toyota Sienna.

In his confessional statement, Rasheed said that his parents were aware of his robbery operations, however,  they warned him to return the guns in his possession, but he refused.

"I stayed in Ketu with my parents where I worked in an aluminium company before joining the gang.

My mother first knew about this when other gang members came to our house to report to her that I had fled with their guns to Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State.

She then called me on the phone to return the guns, but I did not listen. I was using the guns to go on operations in the Ijebu Ode area.

When we went out as a gang, we snatched vehicles which were usually Toyota products.

We sold them, but the gang did not give me my correct share.

Since the police arrested me, my parents have not come to check on me because they are aware of all my activities," he told the police.
