According to a report by RRS, Adebola was quoted as saying: “I was going to Ajah to retire for the night. Just before I got to Chisco around Maroko around 11pm, I snatched a lady’s bag. I attempted to escape but the RRS men were in my front, I waited and handed over the bag.

“I don’t know what came over me. I had only N200 on me. I have been waiting for traffic to build up. I have never been imprisoned before. I plead for leniency. I won’t repeat it again. “I was a motorcycle rider in Shomolu. I came to Ajah to learn carpentry and get serious.”

Moshood Olowu, another suspect arrested by RRS officers said he and his two other accomplices, now at large, left New African Shrine in Alausa Business District, Ikeja, and were heading for Ikorodu through Ojota when they committed the crime.
