A groom’s best man at Gaida area of Kumbotso LGA of Kano State has stolen wedding gifts belonging to the bride worth N500,000.

The incident happened a week after the wedding.

Daily Trust reports that the suspect, who was in possession of the house keys of the couple, could no longer resist the temptation after days of eyeing the gifts.

Speaking on the incident, the vigilante commander of Gaida, Shekarau Ali, said the groom reported the case and they arrested the suspect after an investigation.

According to him, the suspect got the keys from the relatives of the bride with the claim that he was going to hand them over to the groom.

“When the groom asked for the return of the keys, he refused. When he saw that the couple had gone out of the house, he opened the house and stole the wedding boxes (gifts) and food items,” he said.

The vigilante commander added that they are investigating him and will subsequently hand him over to the police.

The suspect has since confessed to the crime, saying it was the devil that made him betray his friend and pleaded forgiveness.

This is even as the suspect claimed that he contributed towards the wedding by spending more than N400,000 for the groom.
