A 24-year-old robbery suspect in Delta State, Chinagorom Emmanuel, has confessed that he turned to robbery to raise money to give his late mother a befitting burial.

The suspect was apprehended by the Agbor Gha-Ihun Vigilante Group in Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of the state.

Emmanuel, who hails from Abia State, allegedly specialized in stealing phones and other valuable items in Agbor and other communities.

Speaking to reporters, the suspect revealed that 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.

He admitted that he enters people’s shops pretending to buy an item but aims to steal valuable items like phones.

Emmanuel further said he chose crime because he has nobody to help him. He also disclosed that he deals with a northerner based in Asaba, who buys the stolen phones.

The Chairman of Agbor Gha-Ihun Vigilante, Comrade Monday Kiyem, said the arrest signifies the end of Emmanuel’s criminality.

He also stated that criminals, when caught, will face the wrath of the law for causing people pain over their stolen goods.

According to Kiyem, Emmanuel is in the business of stealing phones, and they have found many sim cards and phones in his possession.

Many of his victims have also identified their phones and narrated how Emmanuel came to their shops pretending to buy an item and stole their phones.

Kiyem stated that he would hand Emmanuel over to the police for further investigation and bring his fleeing gang members to book.

The arrest of Chinagorom Emmanuel serves as a warning to young people who may be tempted to engage in criminal activities.

It is important to note that there are always other options for raising funds and that crime is not a viable option.

It is also important to note that crime always has consequences, and perpetrators will eventually face the full weight of the law.

In conclusion, while it is understandable that Emmanuel wanted to give his mother a befitting burial, resorting to crime is never the answer.

It is important for society to address issues such as poverty and lack of opportunities to prevent young people from turning to crime.

We must also continue to support security agencies and vigilante groups to maintain law and order in our communities.
