Mother Left In Shock After Her Son Who Was A ‘Church Boy’ Confessed To Being Part Of An Armed Robbery Gang (Details below)
Aliyu Giwa, a well-known Nigerian police officer, has told an intriguing tale about a mother who was shocked when her choir-singing son confessed to being a member of a robbery gang and hiding the ammunitions in the church.
Aliyu claimed in a Facebook post that the suspect’s sister had taken to social media to accuse the police of wrongfully arresting and accusing her brother of armed robbery.
His mother also accused the police of unjust arrest, stating that her son is incapable of being an armed robber.
According to him, everyone was stunned when the suspect admitted to committing the crime.
His post continues, “Honestly, I’ve learned numerous times that one should never judge a book by its cover.
They say that the first impression is the most important! False or True? Sometimes that hypothesis does not hold true. My opinion however…
However, only God knows the human heart!
A few years back, on an Instagram photo of mine. Someone commented, “Your foolish and incompetent colleagues are at it again; please check your direct message.”
Here is my STORY!
After seeing my direct message, I reached out to the individual and said, “What happened, ma’am?” And she explained that her brother had been arrested without justification! I was stunned by her statement, “Without “reasons”?! The police would not randomly arrest you at your residence.
She then responded, “Erm, when we visited the police station yesterday, they informed us that it was a case of armed robbery.” And I swear to my Creator that my brother has no knowledge of the alleged armed robbery crime. My brother is constantly in church. He is both a member of the church choir and the church drummer. He is also responsible for the store where the church’s musical instruments are kept.
To shorten a long tale short, I pleaded with her to meet me the following day at the department where her brother had been detained, and she gratefully agreed.
By the following day, the story had gone viral on social media. I received a string of insults and direct messages. A humorous aspect of the story was that when she posted it online, she omitted the phrase “Armed Robbery Case.” In comparison to what she told me, the story had a different color. As a police officer who is believed to be everyone’s friend, I remained silent and anxiously awaited the next day. The tags, insults, and direct messages became intolerable to me to the point where I could no longer wait till the following day.
Fast forward the next day.
At about 8:35Hrs my phone rang, So I picked “Hello, please who’s this?” The caller responded “I’m Mama A, mother of the boy that was unlawfully arrested. We’re here already. So i replied “Oh ma’am, good morning ma’am, I will meet you up there” Mama A: Okay my son (with a teary voice).
In my mind I was like – God have mercy o.
Got there & met them with the IPO (investigating Police Officer).
IPO:Oga! Good morning Sir
Me: Morning! Wetin happen? What’s the case about?
IPO: Oga na armed robbery case and 3 people were shot dead.
Me: Okay! Then what’s s this guy’s connection with the case on ground!
IPO: He’s part of them Sir!
Mama A: screamed “Blood of Jesus” my son is not brought up that way! God forbid oh! My son can’t be, wouldn’t be and will never be an armed robber.” He’s a shining star! The devil will never get me and my family! (She was crying profusely.
I said to her “Please Mummy just calm down, we will get to the root of the case”
Mind you, the Pastor to the church he works for was there too. So I told the Pastor “Daddy, please help us talk to Mummy she should just calm down”
Pastor: my son I must say, I am not happy with ur men!
The Sister that made the thread and post about the arrest of the Boy was getting rude too! Omo! Menh! Instant headache just hook me.
So I said to the everybody (IPO, Mama A, Pastor, etc) “Oya let’s go meet the Officer In Charge (OC) of the department.”
At the OC’s Office, the following conversations ensued;
Me: Good morning Sir! “Banged my leg and saluted”
OC: Giwa! How’re u?
Me: fine sir.
OC smiled and said “u came for this matter?”
Me: Yes Sir.
OC: IPO, please bring the boy in.
The boy came in! Immediately I saw the guy, then I got scared. “He was looking really cool and calm. He really looked responsible and cool headed.In my mind I said to myself this guy must be innocent. Hmmmm! “God have mercy oh”
What i am going to do o? And my phone never stopped beeping since the previous night.
Immediately the OC said “Giwa, I saw what the sister wrote on the Internet! I wanted to read the story on SM out so that the Everybody could hear what she wrote.
One DM just appeared from no where saying; “You this bastard you & your fellow police officers will die young, your families will die too” Omo menh! I just weak!
So I read what she posted.
And the Pastor called her name and said “I told you not to say anything until after we are out it.
To cut it short!
The IPO said “Oga, please I wan talk!” Oc: go on!
IPO: he has confessed!!
Oc: that what?
IPO: that he just helps them keep the arms!
Mama A: screamed “Jesus oh” the devil is a lair! Blah blah in her dialect”
Pastor: silently said “Jesus Christ” with his eyes closed.
IPO: he said he will take us to the place he hides the gun and ammunitions.
OC asked “Where do u hide them?”
Boy: inside the church (instrument store).
The Pastor couldn’t hold it, he starting shouting.
In all these, his sister was already making another thread on twitter insulting me, the OC and the IPO!
I decided to check my phone during that awkward moment, na so I see my mentions! I was like wetin I do now? His sister stood and left the OC’s Office before I noticed what she had posted.
To cut it short!
OC: IPO take the boy and go get the arms and ammunitions.
IPO: Okay Sir.
When they got to the church (music instrument store) they found a bag with 1 Ak47, 2 locally made guns and ammunitions.
Afterwards the boy confessed that he followed them for operations “only 2 times”. And the second time was the day they shot 3 people dead.
How long have u been helping them to hide the arms and ammunitions? He said “about 2years now”
The mummy didn’t know he had a car! He & his friend told the friend’s dad that he’s into Yahoo Yahoo! That’s where he got the money from.
Subsequently, the sister and his friend either deleted their social media handles or changed their names! My people please have it in mind that not all threads on SM are what they portend to be. Before taking sides you need to hear from both parties. Let’s use the social media to positively influence ourselves and tell good stories of our society. Not using it to give false information and condemning what our society has built. Not using it to bully people and stereotyping them!
