“We have been chasing cows and all of us are from the North. People operating along this Ragachucku axis are Lawal isah, Awalu, Bature Goma, Gamji, Sule, and the rest. They kidnapped someone and were given the sum of 10 million nairas, they also killed one woman; that was the information we got about them.
“In my group, the number of people working within Ragachucku axis are Yusuf, Sule, Gomi, Nasiru, Tukur, Banki, Magaji. Then in the Kirama axis, there is Musa, Kadi, Oria, Ibrahim, Bala, Rebo, Gaia, Malan, Usama, Babangida, Abubakar, and Sule, I forgot the other one’s name.

While pleading for forgiveness, he said, “I promise this will be the first and the last and I promise never to touch anything belonging to anyone ever again. I am pleading for mercy and forgiveness and I will never commit such offence again,” he said.
Military men asked if he would take them to where other bandits are, he said, “Yes because anyone that stands for truth is always with God.”
