stealing various pants at the boutique line.

the suspects were caught with the pants after they had pretended to be
customers and paid for two different ones selected from the hangers.
was gathered that the suspects’ who are undergraduates of Delta State
university were said to be regular visitors to the market. The girls
paid for two packets of mixed coloured pants but in the process removed
three other packets.

noticed the removal of some packets from where they were displayed.
The girls were beaten severely by angry market women.
