The Nigerian Police force, Rapid Response Squad Unit, on Monday arrested a Saidu Atiku, a notorious Toyota Camry brain box robber in Lagos.
Atiku was accompanied by two other suspects. Sodiq Musa 28 and Ridwan Adamu who escaped. They were arrested with three brain boxes in their possession. Sodiq who is one of the suspects claims that he was a graduate of political science before coming to Lagos in search of a job. Unfortunately he had been unable to secure one since 2017 that was why he opted to stealing car brain boxes
Atiku on the other hand claims that he worked as a barbeque man in various hotels in Lagos, before he met Ridwan who introduced him to brain box theft.
” Brain boxes are in high demand in Lagos. For example a Toyota Hiace brain box is about 40,000 Naira we make almost 20,000 Naira profit when he steal them and sell”
The Commissioner of Police, CP Zubairu Muazu, in his reaction to the incident directed the transfer of the case to State CID, Panti.
