A 28-year old armed robbery suspect, Emehelu Ndubuisi, who was recently apprehended by the police alongside another gang member, Uche Chukwu, 21, has claimed that his family members were responsible for his inability to stop the act.

Ndubuisi and his accomplice were arrested by the Lagos State Police Command.

The police revealed that the duo belonged to an armed robbery syndicate which allegedly snatch cars and terrorise motorists in the Lagos metropolis.

The remorseful suspect confessed that the evil people in his village were the brain behind his robbing habit.

According to him, "I am standing trial in court for a robbery case. I used to sell motor spare parts at Ladipo Market, Oshodi. I was initially arrested by the police in February this year, and was charged to the Ikeja Magistrate's Court.

“I was remanded in the Kirikiri Medium Prison for some weeks during which I met one convict, Ogaga. He had spent three years in the prison. He told me some men wanted to sell a stolen vehicle, but I did not listen to him.

“After I secured my bail, I went to my village to attend my grandmother's burial and I noticed some family members were not happy to see me. When I returned from the trip, I did not know how I listened to Ogaga's advice.

“I had sworn never to rob again, but my village people are very evil. They must have charmed me with robbery. It was at the point of collecting the stolen vehicle in Lagos that the police re-arrested me.”

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, confirmed the arrest, but maintained that further investigation was still going on.© 2014Nollywoodgists.com
