Jafar Ismail is the only surviving member of a 3-man gang who attacked a police inspector at a commercial bank along Okunola Road in Idimu, Lagos State on Monday 1 August 2016. In his confessional statement, Ismail said they were informed of the operation by a bank staff who knew the inspector identified as Musa would make the withdrawal that day.
“We have a bank staff, who usually informs us whenever any customer withdraws huge amount.
“We would position our motorcycles around the bank and wait for the customer. Immediately we sight the person, we would ride our bike close and snatch the money. We usually shoot if the person put up resistance.
“At the end of any operation, we would give him the largest share and share the rest among ourselves. We were told that this particular customer withdrew over N300,000, but were not successful as police got us.”
