I failed to heed my mother's warnings, says one-chance gang member .



.
Ajibola Alao, 29, a member of a one-chance gang arrested by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command, has disclosed that his failure to heed his late mother’s advice not to steal other peoples’ sweat caused his arrest. .
.
Alao was chased and arrested on Thursday afternoon during one of his routine operations in Oshodi after dispossessing their lone passenger of his two phones and the sum of N60,000
.
.
Alao, in his confessional statement, admitted been be part of a three man one-chance gang and that the two additional phones in his possession belonged to two previous victims of their operation in Oshodi.
.
.
He stated “I have been in the business of one-chance since 2015. At a time, I was arrested in Mushin Olosa Police station. My mum, who was very ill and on admission in an hospital at that time was brought to see me in a chattered car in detention.
.
.
She pleaded with the officers and secured my bail. She warned me repeatedly never to take other peoples’ sweat. She told me that if I have been using other peoples’ sweat to foot her hospital bills, I should stop it forthwith. .
.
She insisted that if I want to live long, I should stop stealing from people. Few weeks after the incident, she died. I did it then because I needed N140, 000 to pay my house rent. .
.
At this time, I got more than that from a week’s operation but I didn’t stop then. Now, I went back into it to help raise funds for my siblings so that they won't follow the same path.
.
.
I am the first child and the breadwinner of the family. Since the death of my mother, I have been taking care of my brothers. That was my promise to my mum before her death."
