Police arrest Man with 35 Children, 18 Grandchildren who stole to take care of his family

“I had a provision shop in Mud Laval market but all the goods got finished because I used the proceeds to feed my family. I started buying and selling stolen motorcycles because of hunger and poverty,” these were the words of a 78-year-old man who blamed it on hunger after stealing motorcycles.

The 78-year-old man who is resident in Bakin Kura in Bauchi identified as Alhaji Isa Musa has blamed hunger and poverty as the reason why he engaged in buying and selling of stolen motorcycles.

Speaking to Punch after being paraded at the Police headquarters in Bauchi on Friday, Musa said he started the illegal business in 2011.

He said he had operated a provision store at the Muda Laval market but the business became distressed and he could no longer feed his large family of three wives, 35 children and 18 grandchildren.

After he was asked if he had no mature children of his to support him, he said none of his children could support him because they were not buoyant. The suspect said he gave a motorcycle to one of his children to transport himself to school.

Expressing regret for his action, the Septuagenarian pleaded with authorities and said;

“I am suffering from diabetes and I need to treat myself, I beg the police authorities to pardon me.

Although I’ve been doing this illegal business for six years now, if they pardon me, I promise and assure them that this will be my last.” Musa also confessed to having sold Indian hemp in the past six years “but I stopped dealing in drugs about four years ago.” He warned those engaged in such illegal business to desist and repent.
