I Am Finished.. My Church Members Now know I’m An Armed Robber – Popular Alaba Trader


 Armed robber suspect ,John Nnamdi, who owns
one of the biggest stores at the Alaba International
Market has opened up on why he kept participating in robbery operations despite
building mansions from previous
operations.

Arrested with 4 others ,two also
traders,John, while speaking with Crime & Security said that most traders are into armed robbery too “I participated in a robbery operation where we
made over one hundred million naira and I got
twenty eight million naira as my share. What kind
of business could I have done to get that kind of
money?”“I am a businessman at the Alaba
International Market. I deal in musical instruments.

The same thing is applicable to my members. They
have one business or the other in the market.
Some sell generator parts or sets; others sell one
thing or the other to deceive people that we are
into genuine businesses. We robbed a man
travelling from Cotonou.”

On how they got the information that the man was
holding a huge amount of money, John said that “It was our informant that told us that the man was
coming into the country. It was the most successful
robbery operation that I ever participated in.

Others got N25 to N18 million, depending on their
roles. I am the gang leader. “The second robbery was in Cotonou. We raided a
bank. We got big money also. But I can’t say how
much. I know I got N17 million and my boys got
as much as N5 million each.”

The suspects, while speaking on robberies outside
Nigeria, said “Robberies in Cotonou are easier than what
happens in Nigeria. In Cotonou, you don’t even
need a gun to operate. But in Nigeria, especially in
Lagos, you need to be very careful.” On why he continued to participate in robberies
even after making enough money, the suspect
said that “Well, I built a very magnificent building in my
village. I have another one in Lagos. I bought
some cars but I regret everything now.

I am going
to be ashamed both in the market and in my
village because people see me as a big guy. What
of my church? I am finished; I am a Catholic and an active church member who belongs to many
societies. My church members will now see me as
an evil person. I am exposed to ridicule. Well,
many people in Alaba International Market and
other market places are into armed robbery or
other illegal businesses.

Like Victor Anamalechi, he is my gang member and he sells generating sets.
He is equally seen in the market as a big man. The
other person, Ihenacho Igwe (aka Messiah) is not
in Alaba Market, but when he got much money, he
invested in trucks. He also bought some taxis and
commercial buses.

He really utilised his money very well but all is now vanity. “My advice to people is that they should not be
envious of other people that they see in affluence.
Many of them could have acquired their wealth
through illegal means, especially armed robbery.

More so, the money one gets through armed
robbery brings fear and apprehension as one is forced to live in perpetual fear. Now, I have been
living in fear and the thing I was afraid of all this
while has finally happened to me. I have been
arrested and I don’t know my fate yet.” (44)
