42 YEARS OLD MAN CAUGHT STEALING FOUR CARS



The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 42-year-
old Islamic cleric, Rasheed Ayuba, for alleged car theft.
Ayuba, who hails from Igbesa, Ogun State, was
apprehended along with a transporter in Ibadan, Oyo State,
Falade Igbekele, who reportedly bought six of the stolen
cars. A bunch of master keys and about 13 other car keys,
as well as charms, were recovered from Ayuba.
It was gathered that the suspect, who also teaches at an
Arabic school in Ishasi, Lagos, was caught sometime in
June after he entered into a hotel in the Ikotun area to steal
a Toyota Camry parked on the premises.
He was driving out the car when he was caught by
vigilantes in the neighbourhood, who handed him over to
officials of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
Ayuba reportedly told the police that he bought the master
keys for N9,000 from one John, a Beninoise.
He said, “I finished from an Arabic school in Ikotun and
started teaching Arabic in Ishasi. At about 11pm on June 8,
I went to a hotel around Ile-Iwe bus stop to steal a Toyota
Camry. But I was arrested by the security guards in the
area.
“I got the master keys I used from John, who is from Benin
Republic. We met in 2013 in Lagos and he sold the master
keys to me. Since then, I had been using them to steal cars.
I usually sold the cars to my customers in Ibadan. One of
them is Falade (Igbekele) to whom I sold six cars, and
Friday, who bought a Toyota Camry.
“It was only four cars I had stolen this year before I was
arrested. I sold a Toyota Camry to one pastor Dare for
N100,000, and a Honda for N80,000 to another pastor. But
pastor Dare had just paid me N50,000. They all knew I stole
the cars.”
Fifty-two-year-old Igbekele confessed to have bought six
cars from Ayuba, saying a friend introduced him to Ayuba.

The indigene of Ondo State added that he used some of the
vehicles for commercial purpose.
“I knew Alfa Ayuba through a friend called Lucky Star.
Lucky told me Alfa sells vehicles and I said I had interest in
buying them. He had sold six vehicles to me so far,
including a Nissan Sunny and a Nissan Primero. I bought
them for N150,000 each.
“I bought all the cars from Alfa three years ago. He told me
he stole them and I asked if I would not get into trouble; he
said yes,” Igbekele said.
While the police said they were on the trail of the other
accomplices, Ayuba and Igbekele were brought before an
Ikeja Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday on six counts
bordering on stealing and receiving stolen property.
The police prosecutor, Sergeant Donjor Perezi, told the court
that the offences were punishable under sections 98, 285
(10), 326 (a) (b) and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State,
2011.
The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges
before the presiding magistrate, Mrs. O.A. Olayinka, and
were admitted to bail in the sum of N500,000 each with two
sureties each in like sum.
The case was adjourned till November 8, 2016.
