"They Caught Me Because I Didn't Pray Before Stealing" - Arrested Armed Robber Confesses


According to one of the dreaded armed robbers who specialize in snatching vehicles from car owners in Nigeria and driving them to neighboring country, Benin Republic where they sell them, after they were arrested by the Lagos state Police command,  'they only caught him because he didn't pray before their last operation.

The suspects identified as John Godwin when interrogated was reported to have stated that the only reason why he was caught was because he forgot to read the bible, that if he had done so, he wouldn’t have been caught.  In his words, he said;

“I was once sent to Ibara Prison in Abeokuta for stealing something at a market in Abeokuta. It was in the prison that I came across Tosin. It was also Alhaji who sent my phone number to Solomon.

“My plan was not to go back to crime when I came back from prison. I did not have money to take care of myself that was why I went back. But later I told myself robbery is not best option for me because my parents told me when I was born a pastor prophesied that I would become a pastor.

Fortunately, when I was in the prison I used to preach and pray with my colleagues. It is the devil that drove me to crime.

“Whenever we are going on operation, I usually read Psalms 121. I believe reading the Psalms would give me protection throughout the operation period.  On the fateful day I was arrested I forgot to read the Psalms before leaving home. I believe God wanted the police to arrest me so as to quit robbery."

While confirming the news, the Zonal Police Public Relations Officer (ZPPRO), CSP Dolapo Badmos who gave the suspects names as: Solomon Adeniji (27), Tosin Adeoye (25) and two nationals of Republic of Benin, Adewale Adebolaji (45) and Moyori Sule (42), added that they will be charged to court as soon as investigation is completed.
