A 30-year old former painter, Chinedu Obinma, has stated that he dumped his career for robbery because it pays better in Lagos state.
According to a report by P.M.EXPRESS, the suspect was arrested by Police operatives after he robbed a trader of her phone in Ejigbo and used it to empty the N230, 000 in her bank account.
Chinedu Obinma was said to have told the Police that he was a painter but when the business was not flourishing, he abandoned it and moved into robbery and there were changes in his life.
He had tricked the woman by giving her N1000 for a N100 worth of drink. However, when she went to look for change, he used the opportunity to steal her phone.
