Kehinde Olatubosun, 56, from Ibadan, Oyo State, was arrested on Saturday night along with 18 other drug addicts at a joint in Ipodo, Ikeja.
Premium Times reports that a team of Rapid Response Squad Decoy had on Monday night traced a stolen phone to the joint, leading to the arrest of a three-man gang mobile phone thieves, three hard drug peddlers and 13 drug addicts, the police said in a statement on Sunday.
Mr. Olatubosun stated that he made over N10, 000 daily begging at the Mobolaji Bank Anthony
"All days of the week, I'm always in Mobolaji Bank Anthony Roundabout, Toyin Street roundabout and Opebi. At times, I collaborate with beggars. Whatever we make, we share but I get a larger share," said the suspect.
I frequent that joint because I have nowhere to go. I have lived the better part of my life consuming drugs. As I talk to you, the remains of my wife is in Ikeja mortuary. She was taken to Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja. I was asked to bring N150,000 for surgery but I didn't have N50,000 on me then. She died in the process.
Right now, I have lost my family because of my drug addiction. I don't know where my children are or how to start my life again. I can't stop going to that drug joint because it is the only place where I get consolation. It is the only place I'm at peace with myself.
If anybody want to help us, they should arrest the drug barons or dealers. Arresting us won't solve drug problem because without the sellers there won't be the takers.
You arrest the dealers, I mean the merchants, then, you have cut the supply and thus saved us from getting drugs. Without that, we would always find our ways there whenever we are released."
