Why did you kill two pupils at St. John ’ s Anglican Primary School, Agodo , Ogun Waterside Local Government Area ?
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 .
You haven’t answered the question . Why did you kill the pupils ?
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 . ”
