I hopped out of my car to open the gate myself and drove in and entered my living room someone attacked me from the back and stabbed me with a knife on different parts of my body.
“I tried to defend myself but he overpowered me. I was seriously bleeding. He dragged me to my children’s room and locked me there. He took my phone and ATM from meand requested for the PIN. I gave him the wrong one but he said eh wanted my real PIN.
“I pretended as if I was dead. He left afterwards. I had before struggled to wrap clothes I could lay my hands on to reduce the blood coming out of me. Around 11 pm, I managed to get out of the house through the window, It had no burglary. I got to the main road where people saw me and took me to Seven Days Adventist hospital. They rejected me and I was later taken to a private hospital at Ikirun.
“The police and vigilante had been involved then. I told them to help me check my wife and children because I was yet to see them. I was told they were at the police clinic. The next morning the police came and took me away from the hospital and back to the Seven Days hospital. I was later accused of killing my wife, grandchild and niece and was detained. It was my Personal Assistant who called my line and was told that my phone was seized for not paying hotel bills.
He went to the police to inform them, and they went to the police. I was shown the picture on my phone and I recalled he was the same guy who helped me repaired my television set in March. I remembered telling him to give me his account number, so I could transfer, but he wanted cash, so I asked him to follow me to the ATM. I never knew he was watching me while I was using the ATM. I don’t know him from anywhere. It was my wife who introduced him to me.”
