‘I Can’t Do Without Stealing’- Father Of 2 Confesses


I steal to survive.
I was sacked.
My wife does not know I steal cars.

A 31-year-old robbery suspect, Joshua Tabiti has confessed to the operatives of the Zonal Intervention Squad (ZIS) Zone II, Onikan, Lagos State that he cannot do without stealing.
Tabiti, a driver and a father of two, who specialises in stealing cars, was paraded yesterday, alongside his alleged accomplice 34-year-old Oluseye Arokoyo, Ahmed Ali, 24 and receiver of the stolen vehicles, Moses Ofoke, 31.
The police said the gang had stolen over 26 Toyota Camry cars from Oworoshoki, Bariga and Somolu areas of Lagos.
Confessing to the crime, Tabiti said that “he has been stealing since he was a child and has done everything to stop stealing but he still remains the same”
“I have done everything to stop stealing, but I couldn’t. My parents also tried their best, but I cannot do away with robbery. I was sacked where I worked as a driver after I stole my boss’ money.
“I started doing this job after I was sacked where I worked as a driver at Victoria Island. My friend introduced me to in 2017. I have stolen 11 vehicles in Oworonshoki, Bariga and Somolu.
“What we do is to go out around 2am. A man cuts a master key for us to steal Toyota cars. We open the car and kick-start the ignition. We don’t rob at gunpoint. We got the key for N1000 or N2000.
“After stealing it, we send the cars to Ondo to two buyers. The first car we took was a Nissan Salon car. We sold it for N100, 000. The other one was a Toyota Camry which we sold for N200,000.
“Others we sold for N300,000. We were four but three were arrested. The other man has fled. We usually share the money. I used my own money to rent a house and bought household items.
“My wife does not know I steal cars. I have two kids. My wife just knew I was sacked and I was looking for a job. I was sacked after I stole my boss’ N200,000.”
Parading the suspects, AIG Ibrahim Adamu commended the ZIS operatives, charging them to maintain the good work.
