“The victims said their money, clothes and mobile phones were collected by the criminals. I spoke with the suspect and he said it was hunger that pushed him into crime.
“Then I asked him at age 14 you are not talking about hunger, are you not supposed to be in school?
“He now said he doesn’t have money to train himself in school and that is why he joined an armed robbery gang.”
Amatari added that the suspect was later handed over to the Mile 1 Police Station in Port Harcourt, the state Capital.
