I have vandalised just 47 cars in 2 months and stolen their brain boxes – Ex-convict
Olawasegun Oladimeji, 33, was arrested by operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command, for vandalising Toyota cars in Victoria Island. He confessed that he has vandalised 47 cars and removed their brain boxes in the last two months.
The barber, also said a spare part dealer in Ladipo International Market was the one who gave him the specifications of cars to vandalise. He was arrested in Lekki last week by the RRS officials, barely six weeks after he regained freedom from Kirikiri Prison, Lagos.
He had just vandalised some vehicles around Lekki before he was apprehended by the RRS’s patrol team. He disclosed that he was released from prison in November, 2016 after he was convicted for three months for removing Toyota body parts in another garage in Apapa, in July, 2016.
According to him, “Oga Dona (auto parts dealer) has my number. He would call to give me the type of vehicle body parts that are on high demand in the market. He would tell me to get them for him.
I have been working for him now for eight years. I steal different vehicle body parts, particularly, Toyota products. I removed Toyota Corolla brain box, headlight, rear light, buttons and others.
Since I came back from prison in November, 2016, I have stolen brain-boxes of 47 cars. My targets are Toyota products. After I might have gotten all those parts, I would call Oga Dona who would tell me where to meet any of his boys for the collection of the parts.
Chidozie Onyema (32) and Ananyor Chukwu (33) (both pictured) were the guys Oga Dona usually send to me to collect those things on his behalf. I sell Toyota Corolla brain box for N30,000; N25,000 or N20,000. The least of the parts is N2,000.”
