A suspected pickpocket arrested in Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos, has confessed to the operatives of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS), that he makes at least N18,000 daily, selling stolen phones.

The suspect, Lawal Daodu, 31, was arrested on Friday around 5:00 p.m. when he unsuccessful picked a phone from a passerby in Ikeja Under Bridge.

Lawal, who had before his arrest, picked 2 phones from two passersby, was removing another phone from the pocket of another victim, when the phone incidentally fell from his hand thus drawing the attention of its owner.

He was promptly arrested and just as he was explaining the source of the phones in his possession, one of his victim, who was trying to catch a glimpse of what was happening, saw his phone in Lawal’s hands.

“I don’t operate every time. I go out may be twice in a week and I make at least N18,000 from pickpocketing. There were times I made more than that, especially, when I picked expensive phones.

I sell the phones to Afeez and Lanre. They are street guys in Computer Village. I was trained by Bello. I have not seen him a long while now,” he said.
