Two students resorted to robbery so as to raise their West Africa Certificate Examination, WAEC fees.

The two suspects Emmanuel Ewudo, 15, and Chinwe Nwaane, 23, have been arrested for attempted robbery in Imo State.

One of the suspects, Ewudo pleaded for leniency, adding that they attempted the crime because they were trying to raise funds to register for WAEC. He said;

“Please help us beg the police not to kill us, we are sorry for breaking into somebody’s house, we were trying to raise funds to register for the West Africa Certificate Examination.”

The boys, who are students of Bishop Shina-Hand College in Orlu, said that their quest to pay for the WACE fees led them into crime.

The State Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galandanchi, said the duo broke into the residence of one Mrs. Chigozie Ohajiogu in Akokwa, with the intent to rob her.

Her cry, according to Galandanchi, made the suspects to flee, adding that they returned in about 45 minutes later but escaped being arrested by policemen that had come to secure the area.
