I became a robber because of hunger – Suspect

An armed robbery suspect, Saheed Olanrewaju, on Wednesday said he turned to crime as he was on the verge of dying of hunger, The Punch reports.

The 39-year-old suspect, who was paraded on Wednesday by the commissioner of Police in Kwara, Mr Olusola Amore, said a man he called “SV” introduced him to the life of crime to “save him”.

“I met SV in Taiwo area in Ilorin when he taught me how to rob. I regret my action now, but it was hunger that turned me into a robber. I had been starving for long and I realised robbery was the only source of daily bread at the time. If I am eventually freed today, I will never venture into crime again,” Olanrewaju said.

Speaking during the parade, the CP said his men recovered a locally made pistol from the suspect.
