The Niger state police command recently arrested a bricklayer known as Danjuma Idris for stealing motorcycles. The man says he turned to stealing because people no longer builder houses in the state.
It was reported that Idris, 28, and his partner, 27-year-old Mohammed Kudu, had been terrorising motorcyclists in Kpakungu, Chanchaga Local Government Area of the state. Unfortunately for them, they were apprehended after they stole the motorcycle of one Emeka Johnson who lives in Ketaren Gwari.
During his interrogation, Idris said he had to look for other ways to survive since no one was calling him for bricklaying jobs anymore.
“Things are hard, l am looking for what to survive on since there are no jobs anywhere. I have been in this business of snatching motorcycles from people for years. The bricklayer job I was doing cannot sustain me, people are no longer building houses as before and things are hard for young men and that was why I resorted to snatching motorcycles from people,” he said.
Spokesperson for Niger state police command, Muhammad Abubakar, stated that the suspects would be charged to court once they finish investigations.
