Nathaniel Peter, a robbery suspect, arrested last Saturday by the operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command for robbery , has confessed that he finds robbing of night clubbers far better than his butcher job at the Abattoir in Agege.
Nathaniel Peters, 28, was arrested near Abule Egba Fly Over by the operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command, Saturday night.
The RRS officers stationed close to the bridge in responding to distress call for help from a lady who was robbed of her belongings and wounded around 5:00 a.m. in the area, saw Peter running away from the area.
The Police officers chased and arrested him and then parading him before the victim who said Peter wasn’t the guy that robbed her.
But found with Peter were laptop, two wrist watches and two handsets.
After series of questioning, Nathaniel Peter confessed that he was coming from a night club somewhere at Ikeja where he had dispossessed drunk clubbers of their laptops, phones and wrist watches.
He added that he had been visiting night clubs particularly those in Ikeja to break into parked vehicles and rob sleeping and drunk clubbers off their valuables.
He said, ‘I have been in this business since 2016. My friend, Sheriff introduced me to it. We were both butchers at the Agege Abattoir. At a point, he ran away after absconding with his boss’s N170,000:00.
“I ran into him few months later and he invited me to join him visiting night clubs in the metropolis to rob clubbers. He told me it was very lucrative. I have discovered too that its better than my butcher job at Abattoir.”
He went further, ‘we start operations around 3:30am when club activities are winding down and clubbers are beginning to dose off. We rob those standing alone, sleeping in the car and those that are drunk.
“We take valuables from clubbers. We break into cars too. When clubbers are drunk, they hardly feel our hands removing their valuable from their pockets and body’.”
“We have a style of removing their gold rings while they are asleep.
“We sell the valuables to a friend, who takes them to Ghana to resell. But now, I operate alone”, he added.
