Notorious Armed Robber 'Pumpy' Arrested In Lagos (Photo)

A 37-year-old notorious armed robber, identfied as Lanre Olowojobi, a.k.a Pumpy, who was apprehended by operatives of the Nigerian Police Force at the Mushin area of Lagos state at the weekend, has narrated how he was involved in robbery and rape of over 30 women in 3 years. In his statement, Olowojobi admitted that he killed many of his victims for refusing to let go of their valuables.
The suspect was arrested at the weekend during a raid of some identified criminal hideouts in the Akala, Idi-Iro, and Fadeyi areas of the metropolis.
The raid followed frequent complaints by members of the public about the activities of Pumpy and his gang members. In his confessional statement to the police, Pumpy narrated the crimes which were mostly carried out with members of his gang.
He disclosed that his accomplices would drag their unfortunate victims into the bush or abandoned structures where they took turns raping them. The robbery kingpin, who hails from Ipoti in Ekiti State, also said he had shot dead more than 10 persons in frequent fracas in the Akala area of Mushin alone.
Pumpy narrated thus: “I joined the boys in the street in 2008 but I founded my own gang in 2010. Initially, we were four members in the gang but we later increased to 10.

“Aside being contracted by land grabbers and members of the different transport unions during their frequent leadership tussles, we also recruit young boys and girls to sell drugs on the street.

“I have over 20 young boys and girls who sell Indian hemp, Codeine, Tramadol and other drugs to users in the area. These young boys and girls do this in return for food, shelter and protection.

“A good number of them ran away from their homes while some of them are destitute.

“Since 2010 when I founded my own gang, I have killed so many persons. Some of those killed either died during shootouts or were macheted.

“There was a time I butchered one guy like a goat simply because he assaulted my girlfriend. Before then, I had warned him to stay away from my girl but he refused.

“I even sent some of his friends to him and he still paid deaf ears. One day, I sent some of my boys to corner him at night and macheted him severally during the fight that later ensued.”
Chairman of the Lagos State Task Force, Superintendent of Police, Olayinka Egbeyemi, who confirmed the arrest said that, though investigation was still ongoing, those arrested would soon be charged to court.
