A 41 year old robbery suspect, Sunkanmi Adeoye, has said that he ventured into armed robbery so as to raise funds to buy baby items for his pregnant wife.
The suspect, who has since been detained at the State Police Command, was arrested alongside one Kamurudeen Kadiri and Owoseni Adekunle by officers of the command recently.
While being paraded before newsmen, Adeoye said, “Aro got me involved in the operation after I complained to him that I needed cash to take care of my pregnant wife, and also purchase baby items as she will soon put to bed.
He told me we were going for a robbery operation and I agreed to be part of it because he assured me that I will get money from it. I am a photographer, but I need help.”
He went ahead to explain further saying, “It was Aro that introduced me to Kamurudeen and Owoseni. I didn’t know them before the robbery operation. This is our first child, my wife doesn’t know that I have been arrested.”
