The suspect said he did not intend to kill the man but he did so because the man saw his face and recognised him.
“That man was like a father to me. In fact, I can even say that he was my father. He was nice to me. I robbed him that day and took his money. He was selling recharge cards and I stole N3, 000 and recharge card of N3,000. I also stole his red oil which is 25 liters.
“I didn’t plan to kill him. I have no reason to kill him but I killed him because he saw my face and he knew that I was the one. Since, he recognised me, I cannot just leave him. That was why I killed him so that I will not be caught,” the suspect said.
While speaking with newsmen, the suspect showed no sign of remorse.
The CP, however, said he would face the full wrath of the law.
