In what will come across as a really shocking development, a man is said to have led armed robbers to rob his sister and her family.
John Ige Damilola
A man identified as John Ige Damilola, has been accused of leading armed robbers to his sister’s house to attack her and her husband in Ijoko area of Lagos.
The 21-year-old man, a barber, has however claimed that although he knew about the robbery, he did not take part in it.
According to Vanguard, Ige, who was paraded at the state police Command Ikeja, said: “I was not part of the robbery operation. I am not the gang leader. I operate a barbing saloon in front of my sister’s building.
“One of those who attacked and robbed my sister and in-law is my customer. My barbing shop is in the same building where my sister lives, but I do not live there.
“I could not speak out because they informed me of their intentions. They came around 9p.m. But I closed my barbing saloon at about 7p.m. that day. I was arrested because the people that came to rob my sister and her husband implicated me.”
Vanguard reports that Ige was at the scene of the operation, but did not go inside the house. His gang members r*ped the maid and almost r*ped his elder sister.
They left her because she was pregnant.
Investigation is ongoing.
