2 teenagers, Sani Harry and Muhammed Yahaya, who were arrested by the Kwara State Command of the Nigerian Police Force for allegedly robbing people with a cutlass, say they were destined to be robbers.
The suspects, who claimed to be herdsmen and farmers, however, were remorseful enough to warn other youths like themselves to steer clear of robbery and other crimes.
“It is destiny that made me to start robbing people. The temptation just came in a strong way. I just did it without knowing why I did it. I have never killed anybody. We normally rob with cutlasses and sticks. I regret my action now. I will not do it again.”
“I am a farmer and cattle rearer. I do not know why I decided to pertake in robbery. But believe me, I will never do it again.”
