A 13-year-old gang leader has made a shocking confession of how he and his cohorts kept gun for robbers with which they terrorized traders and customers in Idumota market Lagos State.

The boy whose identity was withheld was almost lynched by angry traders save for the timely intervention of officials of the Lagos State Traffic  Management Agency, LASTMA.

In his confessional statement, the boy said he was pushed into the robbery after he was abandoned by his parents.

He said: “I was born in this market. My father and mother are also selling in the  market, but they don’t cater for me. I roam about to eat and fend  for myself.

“About 40 children  sleep with me in shops at night. We   wake early to leave the shops before people start coming for business.

“Sometimes last year, while I was playing football with other children, some guys from  Jankara area called me and gave me a gun. They  said I should help them keep  the gun.

“They also called one of my friends called Daniel and also  gave him guns to keep. We hid the guns in our  clothes.”

“There was a day that they  took us to Agege to rob. Daniel and I kept the  guns they used  for the robbery operation that day. They have taken us to other places to rob  too. They don’t give  us anything.”
