Please help me to understand this Japanese sentence 私は彼に謝らない謝らない。

The translation I was given was I should apologise to him.

However I really dont understand how it means that, 謝らない, does this not mean not apologising and といけません means have to? So I see I dont have to apologise :S

Please can you break 謝らないといけません down into its separate words etc anything to help me understand how this works, the site said it is a basic sentence, but all I am is confused, seems very non-basic to me.
