A pregnant female robbery suspect, who was paraded on Monday in Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, has narrated her exploits with other members of the gang. The 28-year old woman, Taiwo Obafunsho, who said she was selling frozen fish before she joined the robbery gang, told journalists at the Lagos State Police Command where she and other members of the gang were paraded, that she had only taken part in three robbery operations. Obafunsho said she did not participate in the operation that resulted in the death of two policemen in Iju-Ishaga area of Lagos in October.
She, however, declined to speak further on her exploits and how much she made from the three operations she participated in. Her gang members who attacked policemen at Iju-Ishaga also confessed to how they fired at the policemen, killed one of them, injured three and snatched two AK-47 rifles from the cops. One of the gang members, Wasiu Rafiu, 23, said that it was their gang leader, Ife, that fired at the policemen in order to collect their rifles.  The police also recovered from the suspects: two AK-47 rifles with numbered 56-2-5012375 and 07015493 with two AK-47 Magazines fully loaded; one automatic pump action gun; four locally made pistol and 135 live cartridges with their operational vehicle one Ash Colour Hyundai Tucson Jeep with registration number MUS 350 BG in Egbeda area of Lagos.

The suspects were arrested on Sunday after an exchange of fire with the SARS operatives . Taiwo Obafunso, 28, the pregnant woman and mother of a teenager told journalists that she unknowingly got involved with the robbers because one of them had at various times given her monetary gifts.
