A vigilance group, Igbogene Vigilance Committee in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, has arrested a father of two for alleged theft of a pot of soup, 12 wraps of fufu and a half basin of garri flour.
The 35-year-old, whose name was given as Mr. Kaduna Enatimi, hailed from Akassa community of Brass LGA of the state.
Enatimi was said to be arrested by the vigilantes about 2am on Thursday while comfortably consuming some of the stolen wraps of fufu and the soup.
The suspected thief, a married man, was said to have confessed that hunger and economic hardship led him to steal the pot of soup and the other food items.
The Head of the Igbogene Vigilance Committee, Chief MoneySweet Asomo, said the suspect was caught red handed “doing justice” to the soup and food items stolen from a cafeteria owned by an Akwa Ibom State woman in the area.
Asomo noted that the accused claimed that hunger and economic hardship pushed him into stealing the items to enable him to feed himself and his family.
