I stole to give my mother a befitting burial, Chinagorom confesses
Chinagorom Emmanuel, 24-year-old robbery suspect arrested in Delta State, has confessed that he went into robbery to enable him to raise money and give his late mother a befitting burial.
According to Punch, the suspect made the confession after he was arrested by men of Agbor Gha-Ihun Vigilante Group in Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of the state.
Emmanuel, who hails from Abia State, allegedly specialised in stealing phones and other valuable items in Agbor and other communities.
Speaking to newsmen, the suspect said he is an electrical technician but resorted to stealing to give his mother whose body is lying in the mortuary, a befitting burial as the first son.
“I enter people’s shops pretending to buy an item. But I aim to steal valuable items like phones. This is my first time in Agbor, and I met my waterloo in one of my victim’s shops,” he said.
The suspect further said he chose crime since he has nobody to help him.
Emmanuel also disclosed that he deals with a northerner based in Asaba, who buys the stolen phones.
Pleading for forgiveness, the suspect admitted that his criminal activities had disgraced him.
Reacting to the arrest, the Chairman of Agbor Gha-Ihun Vigilante, Comrade Monday Kiyem, said with their security outfit, it is the end of the road for Emmanuel’s criminality because they don’t compromise crime.
He said criminals when caught will be made to face the wrath of the law for causing people pain over their stolen goods.
“Emmanuel is in the business of stealing phones. We have found many sim cards and phones in his possession and many of his victims we succeeded in calling complained that their phones were stolen,” Kiyem stated.
“Some of their Agbor victims have come to our office to identify their phones and narrated how Emmanuel came to their shops pretending to buy an item and stole their phones. I will hand Emmanuel over to the police for further investigation and bring his fleeing gang members to book,”
