According to them, the manager had earlier hired a female gang to rob his boss, but when the operation failed, he contracted and hired them.
They revealed that they attacked the woman’s shop at Oshodi Market on a day she was planning to travel to the United States of America.
Ogunseye said: ”Before we were called to come and carry out the operation, we learnt that the manager had earlier contracted a gang to carry out a similar operation, but the gang failed. He later called my partner, Adetola, who invited me. The two of us went to rob her at her shop on the agreed day. I did not go with a gun.
”I collected the money using charms. When I was contacted for the operation, the manager gave me a gun, but I told him that I did not need a gun. I do not use guns. I have a charm which I believe in. I controlled the woman and collected the money from her with the charm.”
Ogunseye also recalled how they robbed the woman, saying when they got to her shop, she was about to leave, then he approached and commanded her to handover the money to him. Immediately she obliged. He then added: “She opened the boot of her vehicle and handed over the money.
”The money was neatly packed inside a ‘Ghana-must-go’ bag. I escaped with the money. Unfortunately Adetola was nabbed by some of the traders in the market.”
Also speaking on the issue, Adetola said: “When the manager brought the deal to me, I knew I could not carry out the operation alone.
”I contacted Ogunseye to assist me with his charm. I knew he had charm. I regretted my action. God should forgive and have mercy on me. I do not want to die as a sinner.”
On his part, the Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said Ogunseye used part of his share of the money to buy a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV).
According to New Telegraph, Owoseni disclosed that the manager took the lion’s share of the money.
He said: “The manager of the businesswoman, who is at large, would soon be arrested by the police. The two suspects would soon be charged to court.”
Meanwhile, the Lagos state police command has announced that two social media platforms have been added to the command’s address to enable members of the public reach the command.
