One 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, Shehu Buda and Bello Mallam were arrested in Talba Estate, Bida, and claimed that they went into robbery because there was recession in the country and the government did not provide any job for people.
Buda, 20, and Mallam, 18, 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.
