For now, I can’t say categorically what his charges will be but definitely they are related to robbery for which the other suspects were arraigned.”

The officer said, “His statements are still being taken and there are more revelations. We don’t want to rush to court with charges that will be struck out for lack of evidence. The essence of prosecution is to secure a conviction at the end of the day. That is what we want to ensure.”
