The father of three said he was a trader selling musical instruments at Alaba market before he decided to join robbery after he discovered that he was not making enough money in his business.

He said after he was introduced into robbery by his friend he identified as Okonkwo, it did not take long before he became rich.

John also revealed that their robbery operations were carried out beyond the shores of Nigeria as they raided other African countries such as Niger Republic and Mali where they made huge sums of money in foreign currencies.

He said his men raided a community bank in Port Novo in Benin Republic, and a Bureau de change and filling station in Mali.

He said the SARS went to their hideout at Victory Estate, Iba along LASU/Igando Road where Igbi and Umeh were arrested.

    2. What do you mean by "like the yorubas are also involved in robbery"

      I hope you are aware that IGBOS are involved in all sort of crime from armed robbery, kidnapping, importation of fake medications, drug peddling to God-only-know-what crime more than any other tribe in Nigeria.

      If you don't believe me, go to youtube and see videos of fellow Biafrans who are drug peddlers in Asian countries being interrogated by Asians and called terrible names such as "Devils"

      The Asian interrogator in one of the videos said that in Africa, the IGBOS are the masters in crime.
      HE SAID IT HIMSELF. So, the problem is not individualized. It is tribal.

      When you worship money as a tribe then it is tribal to do anything to get the money.
      That is a fact.

      You can keep on deceiving yourself and comparing yourself to the YORUBAS.
      Also, when people complain about it, you can start playing victim or you can start projecting by claiming they hate you.

      In Yoruba land, though we have criminals too but generally we believe in hard work.
      We don't believe in quick money and unnecessary display of wealth which the IGBOS are notoriously known for. That is a fact no matter how unpalatable it is.

      "This one just bought this, that one just acquire that" is mostly what you see on Linda IKEJI' blog. That is part of what drives her people to want to acquire things as quickly as they can without really working hard to get those things.

      This is going to continue until there is some sort of tribal re-orientation where people don't really care about what you have acquired but how u acquired them, where the Linda IKEJI' of the IGBOS' World don't really give a fuck what you have as they won't be putting them up on their various blogs.
      Unfortunately this ain't happening soon.

      So, you really need to get your act together and stop the comparison that has no basis.

    3. Yoruba people are very tribalistic, bigoted and hypocritical. You cannot just hear news that involves Igbos without picking on it. My father and many Igbos I know made their money through hard work. Just to remind you Abiodun Egunjobi is a notorious armed robber. When I read about him I never commented about him being Yoruba. I just saw him as one bad Nigerian. Yoruba people who pick on Igbos are envious because of the ingenuity, tenacity, resilience and grit of the Igbo people. Be a Nigerian and stop promoting tribalism in the 21st century you morons.
