A notorious phone seller and computer village ‘big boy’ who specialises in buying phones stolen by armed robbers, cultists and pickpockets, has been arrested.
Yusuph Da-Silva, 28, popularly called Da-Gold in Ikeja and Ifako Ijaye in Lagos has been transferred to SARS for further investigation and prosecution.
Dá-Silva normally buys his phones from robbers operating in Lagos and Ogun states and has been on police radar for some time before he was eventually arrested.
The phone dealer confesses to making between 25k to 30k naira from his illegal business.
Before he went into criminality, he was a phone technician in computer village but deliberately sought out the criminals when he realized that his earnings could not sustain his living.
