He then robbed her of N8,500 which he found on her.
“The suspect said he used the money to buy Nokia handset phone and used the remaining money to drink local gin called ‘kaikai’.
“The second incident happened a week after, on July 23, the victim is Mrs. Helen, a 54-year-old woman, who went to Egiagu village to farm and never returned.
