The following exchange took place between the suspect and the interviewers:
The killer, who claimed to 28 years old, not married, and without a girlfriend, said he makes a living by organising private lessons for children, whom he charges N20 each.
Narrating why he killed the two innocent pupils of Saint John’s Anglican Primary School, the man who originated claimed insanity, said he got frustrated after going for two weeks without food, and nobody was ready to help him.
“I did not eat for two weeks and I went out to beg other people for money. Nobody gave me money. When I had money, I took care of family members, friends and even outsiders.
“It was due to frustration. When hunger gripped me and it became unbearable, I thought of my life and concluded that it was a bad life. Then I grabbed a machete. I was prepared to face the consequence.”
