“I stole to raise money to feature Davido or Runtown in my music” — Suspected car thief says

A young man has revealed that he stole a car to raise money to feature singers Davido or Runtown in his album.

The self-acclaim singer identified as Dare Williams, was recently arrested for snatching a vehicle from a hailing service driver. He confessed that he went into armed robbery because he was desperate to gather enough money to pay Davido or Runtown to feature in his own album.

Police report stated that the 23-year-old Williams, a student of the Federal College of Education (Technical) Akoka, has lured his friend, Bethel Chukwuocha, 18, to snatch the Toyota Corolla car from the driver, Clement Aniegbe, on Monday night December 21.

The suspects were armed with a kitchen knife and had ordered a ride from Lekki to Gbagada. While on their way to their supposed destination, they threatened the driver with the weapon and carted away his car and mobile phone.

Dare Williams also claimed that he had asked  for help to raise money for his music career but was denied which led to the car theft.

He revealed that he planned to sell the vehicle for a million naira and use the money to advance his music project.
