He said, “I met some Fulani guys at a beer-drinking joint in Ibadan. They told me there is a business they operate along the Ibadan-Ife Expressway and I was invited to enter.
“We blocked the expressway, stopped a car and abducted two of the passengers into the forest. I was trapped because I didn’t know the bush path very well and I got lost.
“The Fulani guys include one Buba, Siraju, Sodiq, and Seidu. I can’t remember other names now.
“I have never been a member of Boko Haram, I am from a village in Tambuwal local government area of Sokoto state and I was roaming around Ibadan before I met the Fulani guys that recruited me.
“It was destined that I would be caught because it was my first operation with them, but from what they told me, it was their normal work.
“I know I had been caught by the law, I don’t know what awaits me, but I wish the government would forgive me and give me another chance. I have never killed someone before, this is my first act against the law.
“Sincerely, I don’t know where the six others are since I lost my way in the bush and I don’t know where they live because I met them at a drinking joint,” the suspect narrated.
