Alexander Okafor‘Well-off’ university students who stole £175k of cash and handsets from 19 retail stores jailed

Members of a violent gang formed by university students, which went on a seven-month crime spree, robbing 19 mobile phone retail stores, have been jailed for more than
62 years.

The students, all from the University of Hertfordshire, stole cash and handsets worth more than £175,000 from Phones 4U, Carphone Warehouse (CPW), Orange and T-Mobile stores in London, Hertfordshire and Essex between March and September 2010.

The three ringleaders of the gang were Alexander Okafor, Oludare Gbajabiamila and Michael Adu, the last of whom is pictured tying up a member of staff during a robbery at a T-Mobile store in Lakeside Shopping Centre, Essex, in which two bin bags full of BlackBerry handsets were stolen.
