I Went Into Stealing Because People No Longer Build Houses – Bricklayer
A bricklayer who was arrested by men of the Niger State Police Command for stealing motorcycles, has revealed that he resorted to stealing because people no longer builder houses in the state.
Danjuma Idris, 28, and his accomplice, 27-year-old Mohammed Kudu, had been terrorising motorcyclists in Kpakungu. They were arrested after stealing the motorcycle of one Emeka Johnson who resides in Ketaren Gwari.
When interrogated, Idris said he had to seek another means 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.
I wish I had not taken to this. But I will blame my situation on the poor economic state of the country and the state” he said.
