“I am a strong man. I have been to prison three times. I was released from prison through the help of my aunty. After my last release, my wife reported me to my mother. My mother who was furious, removed her clothes and placed a curse on me.
“She said if I went to rob again, I would be arrested and I said Amen. So, I contacted a friend to buy my gun because I was done with crime. It was while I was taking the gun to him that the police arrested me.”
