Police in Lagos have arrested two individuals for allegedly snatching a wedding ring and different gadgets from two girls in a gray Toyota Sienna bus.

Nigeria News Live discovered that the suspected thief, Taofeek Adebayo, 19, allegedly snatched and swallowed the ring in the presence of the owner.

He was arrested alongside along with his accomplice, Toheeb Tijani, 20, at Oshodi on the weekend by men of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS).

It was discovered that Adebayo informed the police operatives that he had vomited the ring and handed it over to his colleague, who’s now at large.

The RRS, in a press release, stated the suspects requested the ladies for “food money” (Owo ounje) and got N100 which they rejected, claiming eleyi ki i se owo ti wa (This isn’t our money).

One of the girls narrated that “My colleague and I have been coming from Anthony and heading to Ilasa for our association’s meeting. Three of them (pointing to the suspects) got here near our automobile. There was traffic and we couldn’t turn anyplace. We have been scared. They stated we should give them money for meals. I reached out to my colleague to provide me money.

“She gave me N100 which I gave them. They rejected it. One among them stated, ‘eleyi ki i se owo ti wa ’. I told them that is what I’ve. One among them pulled my left ear and eliminated my earring. I was scared.

“Two of them turned to the opposite side of my car. They threatened to waste us if we don’t give them cash. ‘Where is the money’, they screamed at us. In a rush to leave our car, they pressured my friend to give up her wedding ceremony ring.

“This yellow guy (pointing to Adebayo) took the first one and swallowed it in our presence. His colleague took the other one.”

As for Adebayo, he stated: “I swallowed it but I’ve vomited it and handed it over to Younger Boy – the third man – when police were chasing us. I told him to hand over the rings to the women in order that the police can release us but he absconded with the 2 rings and earring.”
