Robber Arrested On Wedding Day In Ibadan by zinachidi(m): 10:19am On May 24, 2015
Nemesis caught up with a suspected member
of a notorious robbery gang, Olumide Asiyanbi,
as the Oyo State police command caught up
with him while exchanging marital vows at a
marriage registry in Ibadan, the Oyo state
capital.
Asiyanbi presently in police custody said he
joined the gang a year ago and that he had
taken part in 10 robbery operations during
which he fired gun shots at their victims.
“I was arrested on my wedding day. I met the
gang leader, James Agba, last year. He told
me that he knew how we could be getting
regular money. He then initiated me into the
gang. I have taken part in at least 10
operations since I joined them.
“We used gun but I don’t know where James
was buying them. Sulaimon and Alhaji, who
are also in the gang, know how the guns were
bought for our operations. I have fired shots at
our targets but none was killed,” he said.
THISDAY gathered that another gang member
simply identified as Agba who hailed from
Delta State said he purchased some of the
guns from one Emeka in Abuja.
But Asiyanbi, who hails from Ile-Ife in Osun
State, said he was at the marriage registry
when the long hands of the law caught up with
him. He was suspected be a member of a six-
man-robbery gang who operated in Challenge
area of Ibadan on April 23, 2015.
Speaking on the development, the state
Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Katsina,
said the robbers, which included a 62-year-
old Ghanaian, had terrorised many residents of
the area with guns and other weapons.
The Ghanaian, Joseph Mate, said he was a
security man in Ajibade area of Ibadan and
that he had been living in Nigeria for many
years. The commissioner said all the suspects
would be charged to court.

His last robbery incident was about a month ago in Challenge, Ibadan, hails from Osun and getting married in same Ibadan! What a smart dude! Your foolishness is a good thing, making it very easy for the long hand of law to catch you easily.

You can draw inspiration from Shina Rambo despite his escapade, became a pastor but I can remember the dude serving any jail term for all his atrocities. Nigerian Police, I dey hail o.
