Other suspects included: Ezenwa Raphael, Chukwudi Oruma and Thomas Onofuapo.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph while parading the suspects at the headquarters of the command in Akure, the state capital, said Okoro and other suspects were among the armed robbers who had been terrorising the state in the recent time.

Specifically, he said Okoro allegedly attacked a girl who was carrying a sum of N500,000 to the bank and as he was trying to forcefully collect the money from the girl, he was arrested by passers-by.

The PPRO added that a pistol and five live carriages were found on Okoro.

Joseph said,

“Okoro attacked a sales girl who was going to the bank to deposit a sum N500,000. As he was struggling to collect the money from her, the girl raised the alarm that attracted the passer-by who arrested him.”

Okoro, who said he was a vegetable seller in Akure, explained that his efforts to satisfy his wife pushed him to robbery. He said he wanted to pay a N300,000 bride price demanded by his wife’s family.

He said,

“ It is my wife that pushed me into it, I have never stolen in my life, this is the first time, she ran away from my house since three weeks ago and I have been begging her to come back, so I started looking for money to pay her bride price before she comes back.”
