Landlord Leads Gang To Steal Tenant’s Car
The Nigeria Police Force, Ogun State Command has arrested a 43-year old landlord, Taoreed Adegbite, and father of four, for leading a gang of armed robbers to rob his neighbor, Mr. Wale Okeyingbo of his vehicle at Oke-Odo Community, Soyoye, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Taoreed was arrested along with his accomplice, Taiwo Raheem, on Wednesday, while trying to elope with the vehicle. According to Okeyingbo, the victim, Taoreed, was his close neighbor and friend, who taught him how to drive the same vehicle three years ago.
“It was about past 3:00 am when I heard a gunshot from my neighbor’s house and I started praying that they should not come to my house. Before I knew it, they were already at my door trying to break in.
When they could not come in, they demanded my car key; so I threw it at them from the window. Then they kept asking for money and I told them I don’t have money and that they should please go.
When they left my place, I picked my phone to call my neighbors, so they helped me to call Lafenwa Divisional Police Station.
The police then went after them and the vehicle was recovered from them at Oke-Ata and that was where I discovered that the man who led the gang was my neighbor who taught me how to drive with the same car he stole,” he said.
