In an interview with Royaloya.com the 18-year-old suspected robber in military uniform, who lives with his father, publicly confessed to the crime, detailing that he bought the military uniform from someone.
“We carry hunting weapons but I was not arrested with any weapon. I’m a secondary school student in JSS2 at Ikpayongo.
My dad is a farmer and I’m the only child of my mom who is now wedded to another man in Makurdi, ” he told reporters.
Aondoana said he seems bad about his unwell behaviour, stressing that a friend introduced him to the robbery gang.
