- A gang of handicapped robbers were spotted during a raid
- A CCTV footage of the robbers during the operation shows that they are handicapped
- The thieves initially disguised as customers before bringing out guns for the operation
In Nigeria, people living with disabilities are often regarded as helpless and with pity. Many of them are found on the streets begging to make ends meet.
However, in a video sighted by Legit.ng some handicapped men seem to engage in crime to make a living.
In the video shared on Twitter by Laila Ijeoma, about three men, two of them handicapped, entered what looks like a store and pretended to be customers.
While a lady directed one of the handicapped men to a waiting area, he brought out a gun from his bag and showed his true intent. His second partner who is also handicapped served as the lookout as he stood by the door with his gun.
The third robber also proceeded to the inner room with the lady at the store. See the video below:
Just recently, Legit.ng reported that a woman-led robbery gang stripped a taxi driver of his car, money and other possessions.
On October 19, 2018, at about the time of 11:30am, a taxi driver who rides under the umbrella of a popular organisation called Uber picked up a woman at Oniru whose destination was second toll gate in Lekki. On the way, she requested that the driver stop so she could collect money from her boyfriend. He obliged her and stopped.
As soon as he stopped, a gang of armed robbers fell upon him, robbed him of his Toyota Corolla car with Reg. No. KRD-827-EY, a sum of N20,000 and his two phones. Two members of this deadly gang identified as Zino Tochukwu Ude and Anumelechi Chris Williams have been nabbed.
