A FOOTBALLER and male model was robbed while having a wee.

Dayo Adekoya, who signed for 1874 Northwich FC in August, was followed by three men after leaving a nightclub in Liverpool.

The trio held an unknown implement to the back of his head while he was at his most vulnerable before stealing his £25,000 Audemars Piguet watch along with his bracelets, one of them a £15,000 gold Cartier, his expensive bucket hat and man bag, both by Dior and two pairs of Cartier glasses along with his credit cards and passport.

Their movements were caught on CCTV and the trio, Ryan Brown, Alex Guy and Hazel Mputu were all later arrested.

Putting them all behind bars Judge David Aubrey, said that the victim had collected his car after leaving the Pure night club in Back Colquitt Street, Liverpool, but then parked it outside.

As the club was by then closed he went to an isolated spot nearby to urinate.

“I am quite satisfied that he was particularly vulnerable at the time and while urinating you Brown struck him by placing an object on his neck,” said Mr Aubrey.

Mr Adekoya described it as “pointy” and feeling like a pen and could not say whether it was a knife or some other weapon.

“I have no doubt he thought it was something more than a pen,” said the judge.

He said that 23-year-old Brown was the ringleader and described it as “targeted robbery on a lone male and items of high value were stolen.”

Brown, of Esmond Street, Anfield, was on licence from a 74-month sentence at the time and has since been recalled to prison and is not due for release until September 2025.

Jailing him for 40 months on Monday (November 6) Judge Aubrey said that the sentence had to start today and will be subsumed by the sentence he is currently serving.

He jailed both 24-year-old Guy, of Golders Green, Wavertree and Mputu, 23, of Lambourne Road, Walton, for two and a half years.

All three men, who all have previous convictions, all pleaded guilty to robbery and Judge Aubrey said that if they had been older they would have received longer sentences.

Graham Pickavance, prosecuting, told Liverpool Crown Court that the incident happened about 4.30 am on February 5 this year.

While Mr Adekoya was urinating one of the robbers shouted, “give me your money.”

When the victim turned round he was told to take off his shirt before the trio stole his belongings.

When he went back to his car another man gave him back his passport and some items were dropped at the scene including his £750 bucket hat.

He called the police and the defendants were arrested on March 23.

The court heard that Brown has eight previous convictions and was jailed in February 2020 for offences including conspiracy to supply Class A drugs. He had been released licence  six months before the robbery.

Defence barrister Jonathan Rogers said, “He is making efforts to grow up and turn his life around.” He has a partner and young daughter and had admitted his role in the robbery.

Stuart Mills, defending, said that Guy had mental health issues after a close friend was murdered and then later he was hit by a car while on an electric scooter, leaving him with metal rods in both legs.

“He acted foolishly and went along with the enterprise which he has regretted ever since.”

Defence counsel Steven Swift said that Mputu was immature and has some mental  health issues. He has never received a jail sentence before, he added.
