Sikiru Lawal, a 26-year-old Nigerian man, has revealed how his arrest led to the death of his sick mother.

He was taken in by the police for stealing a green Peugeot 206 saloon car in Badagry.

The young revealed how sad he is upon hearing that his ailing mother passed on when she heard the news of his arrest.

He revealed what made him venture into a life of crime as he had hopes of raising money and traveling out of the country.

“She had been sick and had been on hospital bed for some time. We were praying she would get better. I’m one of the three children she had. I was told that when she heard I was arrested for a criminal offence, she gasped and died. I regret my action.”

Prior to his arrest, Lawal had been imprisoned for stealing and conspiracy in March.

The police interrogated him further to know the country he was planning to relocate to but the young man simply insisted that he wanted to leave Nigeria.

Lawal was paraded along with other suspects by Dasuki Galadanchi, the deputy commissioner of police and the acting commissioner of police in Lagos state.

The young man not only regretted the fact that he was arrested, he also regretted the fact that his mother’s life ended because of him.
