A suspected burglar, Joseph Peter, has been arrested for breaking into a room at the IBB Guesthouse, Shango, Minna, Niger State, where he allegedly stole four mobile telephones, one power bank and N10,000 cash.
Northern City News gathered that one Oluwafunke Yusuf, who was in Minna for a workshop, had her room burgled by the suspect.
Operatives of the Niger State Police Command apprehended the suspect, who hails from Kuta in Shiroro Local Government Area of the state.
Peter, a graduate of the College of Education, Minna, told our correspondent that he felt stupid breaking into people’s homes and shops, noting that he had no reason for doing so.
The 26-year-old suspect stated, “I am a disgrace to the society; I have insulted the human race and I don’t have reasons for doing this; I can’t even tell why I’m into it, honestly.
“My mother was highly disappointed as well as my family members, who looked up to me as a rising star; I have dragged our family name in the mud; it’s unfortunate.”
The Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, confirmed the incident to Northern City News on Sunday.
Abubakar said detectives recovered one Fero mobile telephone, Infinix handset, Techno K7, Gionee phone, power bank and N10, 000, all valued at N157,600, from the suspect.
