A 29-year-old tricycle operator, who was arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for robbery has alleged that some of the arms used by robbers were given to them by politicians during campaigns.

Some locally made pistols and live cartridges were recovered from the suspect Muyideen Ibrahim, who was arrested alongside others like Ramonu Sanusi, Rilawanu Ayinde , Sodiq Olaide and Kazeem Idris.

“I use my keke Marwa to convey weapons for the gang,” he confessed to Vanguard in an interview. “I am a political thug and not a robber. I work during elections only. Most of the guns were given to us by politicians. We get the guns from some honorables at Onike. They pay us at the end of the day. But some political thugs end up not taking the guns back to the politicians. Most of the thugs are cultists,” he said.

“One of them (cultists) Dagbe Ahmed, stays with me. But I never knew he is an armed robber. I was arrested because the police got to know that he stays with me. Dagbe and I work for different politicians. I do not fight or kill like them, I only operate with my keke marwa after elections,” he said.
