He said: “The idea behind our operation was a collective one. I cannot tell who actually brought it. But before then, we had read something similar in the newspapers, and we modified it. “Some of the ATM cards found in our possession were all invalid, and that was what we were using to steal from our victims. “We don’t operate in one state.
We move from one state to the other, and after we had succeeded in stealing a victim’s card, we would take the card to a machine where we would check the balance in the owner’s account. “If the money in it was less than N20,000, we would leave the money and move on to look for other victims. But if the amount in the account was huge, we would withdraw up to the ATM limit, then we would go to any shop where phones are sold and by phones, which we would resell at cheaper prices.
“Sometimes, we take the ATM cards to night clubs and hotels where we paid with cards. “In our last operation, we bought three Samsung Galaxy Edge for N245,000 each and we sold them for N215,000. We also bought three Blackberry Passport for N130,000 each and sold them for N90,000. We bought two Infinix phones for N82,000 each and sold them for N60,000. “I can’t count the number of operations we have done, but we normally share all the money we have made equally. “I have succeeded in buying a Toyota Camry with my own share of our loot, but I don’t know what my friends have done with theirs.
