Eyewitnesses said at about 7a.m., Onu and his members, snatched a bag from a lady and were fleeing the scene, when Onu was caught by a mob.
Onu, was said to have brought out a red amulet from his pocket threatening to use it on anyone who came close to him, immediately dispersing the crow, which resulted in two of the gang members to escape, but was not lucky, as two policemen on patrol arrested him right there on the spot.
Speaking with Vanguard while being paraded alongside other suspects at the command, he said:
I was lured into morning raid by my friend, Wasiu. I used to be a private guard at a site in Ogun State. The charm was meant for protection, in case of any attack by intruders. If used on anyone, the person will faint but won’t die.
There are some that can cause an opponent to run mad, but I decided to use this because I did not want anybody’s blood to be on my head. Wasiu only invited me to come to Anthony Bus Stop, but he did not tell me he was going for an operation.
When I saw them snatching bags from female victims in particular, I could not turn back because I was afraid he could harm me. I have brought shame to my father, who has already made arrangement for me to start apprenticeship in fashion designing by Monday (today), since I could not conclude my secondary education due to the demise of my mother, who was solely responsible for my education.”
Commissioner of Police, also revealed that he would be charged to court soon.
