‘I have been in this business since 2016. My friend, Sheriff introduced me to it. We were both butchers at the Agege Abattoir. I ran into him after absconding with my boss N170,000
He told me it was very lucrative. I have discovered too that it is better than my butcher job at Abattoir. We start operation around 3:30 when club activities are winding down and clubbers are beginning to dose off.
We rob those standing alone, sleeping in car and those that are drunk. We break into cars too. When clubbers are drunk, they hardly feel our hands removing their valuables from their pockets and bodies, while we perform our operation.
We have a style of removing their gold rings while they are asleep and they will not wake up. We sell the valuables to a friend, who takes them to Ghana to resell.”
