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.
