61yrs Old Grandfather Arrested for Robbery After Spending 21 Years in Jail

Sadly, Nigeria remains a country without any proper social security, yet our political leaders who get millions of Naira every month as salary and allowances are happy to send the poor to prison.

When people waste away in prison for several years and come out, what do you expect them to do to feed? Who will employ them? Looks like we are running a country without conscience. Sigh!

A 61-year-old ex-convict allegedly involved in armed robbery, car snatching, etc, was on Friday again paraded alongside 11 others by operatives of the Nigeria Police in Ondo State.

Speaking while parading the suspects, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Gbenga Adeyanju, said the 61-year-old Ajibola Aliu, was recently granted amnesty by the Osun State judiciary at the Ilesa Maximum Prison after spending 21 years in jail for armed robbery.

According to PT, the Police boss said Aliu, a driver, was a member of a gang terrorising citizens within the state and its environs adding that guns, charms and other valuable items were recovered from the suspects.

Those paraded include five armed robbery suspects, four cultists and two others who specialise in motorcycle snatching at gun point. 

- create a proper social security that can take care of some of these people and crime rate will drop.
