One of the two suspected robbers who were arrested by police detectives attached to New Bussa Division have confessed that he went into robbery in order to please his wife.
The suspects Jariri Chede and Janya Shehu attacked vehicles conveying goods from the market in Kokongi through Wawa village in the Borgu Local Government Area of the state.
Shehu, who got married recently, said he joined the gang because he needed money to take care of his wife.
“I don’t want my wife to lack anything; I can do anything to please her. I promised her that I will do everything to please her no matter what, not until I found myself in police net.
“I have no regrets because I voluntarily, willingly committed the crime so it doesn’t make sense to say I’m regretting, it is between me and Allah,” he said.
Asked how his wife and family would feel, Shehu said, “My wife definitely will feel bad but I committed the crime so let me go in for it and as for my parents, I have disappointed them and I pray they will forgive me.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, told Northern City News on Sunday that the police are still on the trail of another member of the gang, noting that the suspects would be arraigned in court after investigation.
