A former Nigerian soldier, Isaac Adejuwon (not real name) has brought shame to his family and country after he was arrested for armed robbery . Isaac who was on a 10-day leave from Operation Zama Lafia was part of the troops that are currently fighting against Islamic sect , Boko Haram .
The 23-year-old is currently being held at Department of Criminal Investigations of the Ogun State Police Command, at Eleweran, Abeokuta. The police have withheld his identity pending when the military would be notified of his crime.
While speaking to Punch , Isaac revealed that what the Nigerian Army was paying him was enough but that he wanted more and thought armed robbery will provide his needs before going back to his Maiduguri base in Borno State. According to him , his father is late and his mother is not doing so much in Ibadan. He is the one taking care of himself ,that’s why he needed money.
When Isaac got to his hometown, in Ibiade area of Ogun State, he immediately contacted his childhood friend, 20-year-old Fasasi Idris. He said
“When I suggested robbery to Idris, he told me that he knew an uncle of his that we could rob. So, on January 27, 2015, we visited the man in Ibadan to see how we could rob him. But when we got to his house, he entertained us in such a way that I had a change of heart.I told Idris that the man was too nice for us to rob. Idris also agreed and we left the man. While on our way back to Ibiade, we realised that the private car that we boarded had just a passenger along with the driver and both of them did not understand Yoruba. Right inside the car, we decided to snatch the vehicle.
“I had bought a military jack-knife for N3,500 and also bought a locally made pistol before I left Maiduguri. I gave the knife to Idris while I held on to the loaded gun.”
When the vehicle transporting the two men got to a bridge near Sagamu:
“I told him I could not go any further without urinating. When he stopped and I pretended to urinate, I brought out the gun and went to the driver’s side while I also signalled to Idris to handle the passenger.I pointed the gun to the driver and he was resisting, so, I decided to release a shot in the air. While I struggled for the key with him, the driver stabbed me in the hip and I was bleeding heavily, ”he said
Idris succeeded in restraining the other passenger who later fled along with the driver.The two young men sped off in the car and took it to their hometown in Ibiade.
However, they both ran out of luck when they got to the town and Isaac sighted a young girl and because he had a romantic interest in her , he decided to give her a lift. They were riding around town when policemen at a checkpoint arrested them .Seeing they couldn’t explain how they got the car , they were arrested by the police .Isaac confessed that they were looking for a buyer for the car before they were arrested.
When he was asked whether he had the intention of going back to Maiduguri to continue his duty, Adejuwon said,
“Yes sir. I would be happy to go back to continue my military duty. I like being a soldier. I killed many Boko Haram members. I really enjoyed that. I joined the army two years ago when I was looking for a job.”
The police have also withheld specifics about Adejuwon’s military identity. Investigations were still ongoing and the police would inform the military about the case,the police spokesperson in Ogun State said.
