I'm Not A Thief, Hard Condition In Buhari Government Led Me Into Temptation – Robbery Suspects

Two armed robbery suspects arrested by the Department of State Service in Anambra State, Uche Ezeugo and Somadina, have attributed their actions to the current hard times in the country.

Ezeugo said he was forced into the act to enable him give his late father a befitting burial. His words, “I’m not a natural thief. It’s this Buhari hard condition that led me into this temptation.”

They were arrested for allegedly stealing some laptops.

Somadina, on his part, blamed his action on hunger and starvation. The two, in their twenties, from Aguluezechukwu in Aguata council area of the state, were apprehended by the DSS at Nanka in Orumba North area of the state.

While confessing to the crime, the suspects said it was their first time of involving themselves in the act. They pleaded for leniency, promising not to indulge in such acts again.

The Anambra State Police Commissioner, Mr. Sam Okaula, said the laptops had been disposed by the suspects before they were arrested.

The CP said two pump action guns and one locally made rifle were recovered from them, adding that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.

He advised youths to shun crime, noting that every crime leads to trouble.


  1. No excuse 4 crime, dey should face d law..

  2. You cannot rob Peter to pay Paul & claimed to be doing the right thing, those people that their laptop were stole are not the ones responsible for your conditions. Always remember patience is virtue.

  3. Haa na was for Change government. No coins. P

  4. Nigerians when shall we stop the blame game. Buhari blames previous regime for the economic loom in the country whilst armed robbers blame PMB for robbery. Funny indeed. You are responsible for your actions; think before you act.

  5. Unnatural thief!Hilarious! Smh So because of burial show off, you decided to steal abi. Yeye excuses.
