I robbed to pay my son’s hospital bill – Suspect
Uche Udoma who claimed to be a car panel beater in Abia State, said he had stayed without any job to do for a long time, adding that when he needed money to restore his son’s health, he had no option but rob to raise the money.
He said, “That was what led me into stealing. I broke into my neighbour’s house and stole her Plasma television, but I was caught in the act and the television set was collected back from me.”
It was gathered that operatives of the Anti-kidnapping Unit attached to the Umuahia Central Police Station arrested the suspect while responding to a distress call from one Dr. Chioma Okoli, whose house was burgled by the suspect at Amakama Housing Estate in Umuahia.
