The operatives of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad have arrested two suspects who specialized in vandalizing vehicles and stealing their brain boxes.
The suspects Sodiq Musa, 28, and Saidu Atiku, 34, were arrested at 27, Awolowo road Ikeja with four Toyota vehicle brain boxes.
Sodiq claims he is a graduate of one of the Nigerian Universities, where he studied Political Science before he came to Lagos in 2017 in search of greener pasture.
“I worked in Lagos as a barbeque man in various hotels and events before I met Ridwan who introduced me to brain box theft and he taught me all the antics and styles.
We use ‘magic stone’ that is, vehicle spark plug, to break vehicle windows without attracting attention. It takes two minutes to loosen a Toyota Hiace bus brain box and it takes four minutes to loosen a Toyota Hilux box.
The spark plug reduces the noise and effects quick break of any vehicle window and we tie the plug in a handkerchief in a situation where we have multiple vehicles to work on,” he said.
