Why I Specialize In Snatching Motorcycles – Criminal Bricklayer Confesses



The operatives of the Nigerian Police have apprehended two suspected motorcycle thieves who have confessed why they specialize in stealing ‘okadas’.
Two suspected motorcycle thieves identified as Danjuma Idris and Mohammed Kudu, who have been terrorising Kpakungu in the Chanchaga Local Government Area of Niger state, have been arrested by the Police.

According to PUNCH Metro, the suspects were apprehended by the police operatives after robbing one Johnson Emeka of Ketaren Gwari, of his Jingcheng motorcycle.

It was gathered on Tuesday that the bandits were sent by one Abdulsalami Abdulkareem, of Farm Centre Tunga, Minna to deliver the motorcycle to one Sadam Dutse in Kaduna State.

Checks revealed that the suspects had been involved in robbery for many years before they were apprehended.

While speaking to a correspondent, one of the suspects, Idris said that they were hired to deliver the motorcycle to Dutse in Kaduna “just to get little money for survival.”

He said, “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.”

Idris blamed the government for not creating jobs, noting that “if government creates jobs for the youths, crime will reduce to the barest minimum.”
