“I am a killer; I have done four jobs for him. He sent me to kill Kunle Poly, but we missed our target and killed Kunle Poly’s personal assistant. “I charge him N1.5million and he gave me part-payment of N500, 000 and promised to pay me N1million if we accomplish the task. 

“I connected with my guys. We went where Kunle Poly was holding meeting. When he came out with Ayinla, we shot him, but we missed our target and the bullet hit Ayinla.

“When we called Olohunwa and told him we have killed Kunle Poly, he said it was a lie. We later discovered it was not Kunle Poly we killed. I insisted he must settle me so that I can settle my gang members, but he refused to settle since me. I started threatening him.“When he refused to pay me, I seized his Honda Jeep. It was at this point the Police caught me and recovered the jeep.”
