How I use toy gun to rob those who give me free ride — Suspect

A
25-year-old suspected armed robber, Paul Bassey has narrated how he
used toy gun to rob a Good Samaritan, who gave him free ride.

Bassey met waterloo few days ago when operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) arrested him along Epe express way.
He also confessed that he had many successful robbery operations, using the toy gun.
According
to one of the RRS officers, “we were on routine patrol duty when we
suddenly saw a vehicle on high speed coming behind us. The said vehicle
overtook us and its driver forcefully opened the door and started
shouting for help. Immediately, we gave the car a hot chase, which led
to the arrest of a young guy, later identified as Paul Bassey.”
On
arrival at the RRS Headquarters in Alausa, the suspect confessed to the
crime, saying “I was a lone operator and employ the tactics of stopping
private car drivers to seek for lift. Once I enter into the car, I will
point the iron-made gun at their head to subject them to my control. If
they cooperate with me I will only collect their belongings and let
them go but if they drag with me, I will use my stainless toy gun to hit
them.
“I operate very early in the morning and late at night
because they won’t know that I was using fake gun to threaten them,” he
said.
The spokesman for the state police command, Dolapo Badmus
confirmed the arrest of the suspect, adding that he will be charged to
court soon.
