The Niger State police command has arrested a suspected burglar identified as Joseph Peter, who reportedly broke 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.
The suspected burglar who is from Kuta in Shiroro Local Government Area of the state, stole from one Oluwafunke Yusuf, who was in Minna for a workshop.
Speaking to newsmen, 26-year-old Peter, a graduate of the College of Education, Minna, disclosed that he felt stupid breaking into people’s homes and shops, noting that he had no reason for doing so.
“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” he said.
Punch reported that the Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, revealed that 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.
