A 35 year old father of two was caught stealing 12 wraps of fufu and a pot of soup from a restaurant in Igbogene, Bayelsa State. According to the Igbogene vigilante group, about 2am on Thursday, Kaduna Eradiri was apprehended while sneaking into the restaurant to steal the food, Guardian newspaper revealed.
‘We were on patrol around 2:00am when we got to the Timida School area, we saw a man at a local food joint eating, we questioned the culprit and he confessed to have stolen’ a pot of soup, some wraps of fufu and half basin of garri. He claimed it was the economic hardship that led him to the heinous act.’
He was presented before the paramount ruler of the area, the Obenibe XI of Epie Kingdom, Hope Green Adike for intervention. Hope Green Adike ordered that the father of two who claims he only committed the act to feed his children, parade the stolen items around the community and was forced to eat it afterwards. The owner of the restaurant said she simply had no money to take up the case to the Police, and will therefore allow him to go freely after she was contacted.
