A man nabbed for stealing bunches of plantain has claimed that he committed the offence to meet his girlfriend’s demand.
During his interrogation, the suspect claimed that he stole because of his girlfriend. According to him, his girlfriend requested for the sum of ten thousand naira (N10,000) to buy makeup and had given him a deadline to get the money.
The suspect said he became frustrated when the deadline was approaching so he resorted to stealing.
He revealed that he entered people’s farms in Ebedebiri and harvested their plantains, which he planned to sell in order to raise money for his girlfriend.
However, the suspected thief has pleaded with the community leaders to forgive him.
