A member of a robbery gang, Jimoh Wasiu, on Thursday narrated how they stole a Kia car and sold it for a meagre N10, 000.
Mr. Wasiu, 37, made the disclosure while being paraded before journalists at the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, headquarters in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
He was paraded alongside two other members of the gang, named Damilola Daramola (38) and Tunji Makinde (38).
Mr. Wasiu said the gang was formed in 2015 and had only snatched two cars. One of the stolen cars was the Kia they sold for N10, 000.
He said the group specialised in snatching cars and tricycles on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who paraded the suspects, said the gang operates on Lagos-Ibadan Highway.
Five suspected cultists were also paraded. They were accused of terrorising Ogijo and its environs before they were arrested.
Mr. Oyeyemi said the cultists killed a man at a filling station.
The police spokesman disclosed the identities of the suspected cultists as Oluwatosin Mosaku, Tunde Adeleye, Olajuwon Kashimawo, Sunday Ajayi and Sharafa Oladipupo.
He said Mosaku, popularly known as Mega Tea, was a notorious cultist who had killed many people in Ikorodu, Lagos state, while Kashimawo was allegedly responsible for the death of a-16-year-old boy that was killed on Tuesday at MRS Petrol station in Ogijo.
He said Ajayi, popularly known as Egbere, had been on police wanted list for snatching a rifle from a police corporal at Oko-Oba in Ogijo located in Sagamu local government area of Ogun State.
