A teen was arrested on charges of armed robbery after being caught with a gun and plotting to rob several people, police in Nigeria said.
Enugu State Police said that they have arrested 17-year-old Uchenna Ikwuegbu, just as he was ready to pounce on innocent people.
Police recovered a gun with ammunition.
Ikwuegbu told police that he purchased the gun to meet the demands of his girlfriend, Chinaza, who kept nagging him for cash.
He said that he was left with no choice but to attack innocent residents and strip them of their valuables. The parents of the suspect told police that they are very disappointed with the actions of their son.
They also urged other teens to stay in school and not hook up with criminals.
