Nigerian Man Jailed 17 Yrs In the UK For Armed Robbery After Victim Recognised Him On FB


A Nigerian was today jailed in the UK for 17 years after being convicted of robbery and unlawful weapons and firearms possession. Omar Famuyide, 21, was caught following a two month violent crime spree when he was recognised by one of his victims on Facebook. He was one of two men who burst into the Ambassador’s Relaxation Suite on 13 July last year and assaulted women inside, threatening them with a metal bar and a handgun.
The pair then fled the Florence Street venue in the city centre empty handed while firing a shot inside building. Fortunately nobody was seriously hurt. A month later he walked up to a man in Highgate, held a gun to his head and demanded the keys to his BMW. He then stole the car.

It was found two days later parked on a road in Edgbaston, along with a firearm which was examined and found to be the gun that fired a bullet at the relaxation suite a month earlier. Also found were keys to a Seat Leon, which was stolen by a man with a knife in Highgate on the same night that the BMW taken.
After the victim of the Seat Leon robbery contacted officers in August to say he recognised the offender on Facebook, Famuyide was arrested.

At his house, detectives found a distinctive fisherman’s style hat, identical to that worn by the offender during the disorder at the relaxation suite, a machete, a balaclava, a number of mobile phones and another combat knife.

It was a crucial part of the investigation when one of the victims got in touch after recognising Famuyide on Facebook and was the final piece of the jigsaw that we were looking for. I want to commend all the victims who bravely came forward and gave evidence against someone who is clearly a dangerous, violent man.
