MASTER Chukwujekwu Ezigbo, the 15 year old boy who was arrested by Police operatives attached to Ojo Division has confessed that his contractors paid him N500 for each pant he successfully stole and handed over to them. He however, lamented in tears that he does not know what they do with the female under-wears. The Senior Secondary School SS2 student said he was using the money paid to him to augment whatever his uncle he stays with gave to him for his upkeep. “I do not know what they do with the pants; it was aunty Gold that asked me to be stealing the pants from where they hung and anytime I bring some for her she paid me N500. Sometime, she dashed me money too without bringing any pant for her and that made me to be going after ladies under wears to please her. Part of the money she gave me, I used it for my education; I do not know all these ladies arrested with her. I am not a ritualist; please help me,” he lamented in tears. But the Police say, the teenager and his accomplices would soon have their day in court adding that investigation showed that the SS2 student had been in the act for almost a year now.
