Uche Udoma was arrested by operatives of the Anti-kidnapping Unit attached to the Umuahia Central Police Station, who responded to a distress call from one Dr. Chioma Okoli, whose house at Amakama Housing Estate in Umuahia, was burgled by the suspect.
The suspect, who said he’s a panel beater, revealed that he stole so he could he pay
his son’s hospital bill as no job has been coming for a long time.
“That was what led me into stealing. I broke into my neighbour’s house and stole her Plasma television, but I was caught in the act and the television set was collected back from me” he said.
