“Our Leader Shot Pregnant Woman in the Private Part” – Robbery Suspect Confesses
A member of a deadly eight-man armed robbery gang, Johnson Aikko, aka Stigma, arrested by detectives attached to the Special Intelligence Response Team (SIRT), set up by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has narrated how their gang leader known as Denis Avaughwa, aka Ava, shot a pregnant woman in her private part during one of their raids in a house in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
Akiko added that apart from shooting the heavily pregnant woman, Ava also shot the woman’s husband on his two legs and that the other gang members fought with their leader and questioned why he had to shoot the woman even after they had robbed the family of their valuables.
Aikko also told the operatives that sometime in 2015, his gang, while escaping after a robbery operation, stumbled on a six Fulani herdsmen sleeping and opened fire on them, killing them all.
According to the members of the gang, were supplied weapons by a prison official and a policeman, after their arrest led to the discovery of three AK47 rifles and four revolvers.
Akiko recollected how the woman was killed in the most horrific way by Ava in November, 2015, when the gang raided the Supper Cell Estate, a highbrow area in Apo, in the FCT.
In his words:
“He shot into her private part. I was stunned. He went on to shoot the woman’s husband. The woman’s husband lost two of his legs.”
