A robbery suspect is not shying away from his crimes and he even justifies it by saying, since his rulers partake in it, he also would and he won’t stop.
One out of the two armed robbers recently arrested by the Niger State Police Command, has revealed that if freed, he would still go back to rob people.
According to reports by PUNCH, the suspects, identified as Bello Mallam and Shehu Buda were arrested in Talba Estate, Bida, and they revealed that they went into robbery because of the hardship of the country and also the inability of the government to provide jobs.
Mallam, 18 and Shehu, 20, were trailed and apprehended after robbing one Mohammed Mohammed of the sum of N7,400 and two handsets valued at N9,000, after inflicting injury on him with a machete and planks for preventing them from raping his daughter
Buda revealed that he committed the crime due to the economic recession in the country. “Many people are stealing in the country, including top government officials. People are dying of hunger and there is no job.”
What else do you expect me to do other than stealing? If am discharged by the police, I will still go back to rob people. The country is in a bad situation,” he said unrepentantly. The suspects will be charged to court at the end of investigation.
