Okunola, who was released from Ikoyi Prison, on Friday, October 5, 2018, in his statement to the police, disclosed that he had spent six months and two weeks in prison before being released.

The suspect, while pleading with the police, stated that he is a trained barber and was looking for funds to do his freedom in Lagos. He added that if released, “I will never step into Lagos again”.

The victim, Gift Omini, had told the police that the suspects who were riding a bike, used a short axe to dispossess her of a mobile phone. “My shout for help attracted the attention of RRS officers at the Roundabout and they chased and arrested them,” she added.
