Armed robbery suspect believes family curses is behind criminal acts

Can a family curse lead a man into criminal activities?

An armed robbery suspect who is currently in the cells of the Lagos State Police Command, Ndubuisi Emehulu, from Enugu State, has claimed that the 'strong men' in his family placed a curse on him and that has made it impossible for him to refrain from his criminal activities.

The 28-year-old man who was arrested in the Oshodi area of the state alongside his comrade-in-crime, 21-year-old Uche Chukwu, confessed that anytime the curse gets into him, he does not know what he is doing until he is caught in the act.

The police say the two suspects are members of a deadly armed robbery syndicate which has been terrorising Lagos residents and snatching exotic cars at gun point in the metropolis.

Ndubuisi, a father of one, who is still standing trial for a robbery case at the Ikeja Magistrates’ Court, was only released on bail before he teamed up with his gang to go for other operations before he was nabbed yet again.

In his confessional statement, Ndubuisi said that after securing his bail, he went to his village in Enugu State for his grandmother’s burial, where he suspected that his family members had placed a robbery spell on him.

He said:

"I am standing trial in court for a robbery case. I used to sell motor spare parts at the , Oshodi. I was initially arrested by the police in February this year, and was charged to the Ikeja Magistrate’s Court.

I was remanded in the Kirikiri Medium Prison for some weeks during which I met one convict, Ogaga. He had spent three years in the prison. He told me some men wanted to sell a stolen vehicle, but I did not listen to him.

After I secured my bail, I went to my village to attend my grandmother’s burial and I noticed some family members were not happy to see me. When I returned from the trip, I did not know how I listened to Ogaga’s advice.

I had sworn never to rob again, but my village people are very evil. They must have charmed me with robbery. It was at the point of collecting the stolen vehicle in Lagos that the police re-arrested me."
