We Started Stealing To Raise Money For WAEC – Teenage Suspects Confess

  
Two teenagers identified as Emmanuel Ewudo and Chinwe Nwaane, have been paraded on Tuesday by the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galandanchi, for attempted robbery, and burglary. According to PUNCH Metro, speaking while being paraded, one of the suspects, Ewudo pleaded for leniency, adding that they attempted the crime because they were trying to raise funds to register for the West Africa Certificate Examination.
 
He said, “Please help us beg the police not to kill us, we are sorry for breaking into somebody’s house, we were trying to raise funds to register for the West Africa Certificate Examination.”
 
The boys, who are students of Bishop Shina-Hand College in Orlu, said that their quest to pay for the WACE fees led them into crime.
 
The police boss who paraded the suspects, said the command would charge them to court after investigation, adding that the duo broke into the residence of one Mrs. Chigozie Ohajiogu in Akokwa, Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State with the intent to rob her.
 
Galandanchi said Chigozie's cry made the suspects to flee, and that they returned in about 45 minutes later but escaped being arrested by policemen that had come to secure the area, adding that they were nabbed in their school.
 
The other suspect, Nwaane, said, “Yes we are students. My father has been bedridden and in hospital and unable to pay my WAEC fees, I begged my friend to accompany me somewhere. We went to rob the woman but we were not successful.
 
“We were caught one day after. We are very scared, we don’t want to be killed but we know that it is wrong to break into somebody’s house.”
