‘I thought it was a miracle’


A car snatcher, Ojo Oluwafemi, 26, is one of those who strongly believe in miracle. The mere fact that he picked a car key on the road that easily opened a car parked at No. 24 Wosilatu Street, Baruwa Ipaja Lagos would be described as a perfect miracle.

A car snatcher, Ojo Oluwafemi, 26, is one of those who strongly believe in miracle. The mere fact that he picked a car key on the road that easily opened a car parked at No. 24 Wosilatu Street, Baruwa Ipaja Lagos would be described as a perfect miracle.

He had perfected the act and was about to move things from the car when the owner of the car Oye Goldpin sighted him and raised an alarm he was arrested and taken to Iyana Ipaja police a station where the police hopes that he would lead them to some of the miraculous thefts he had carried out around the area.

My God I have never involved myself in such an act before, look at me in prison custody. Hei, I heard that they are going to kill us. I do not want to die. I felt it was a divine opportunity for me to see a key that would fit into that vehicle," he sobbed.
