“The two of them were having issues. Isaac Mories, my colleague was serving the other Indian man who was junior to my boss. One day, Isaacs came to me that I should help him to kill my boss. I say no, I will go and report him to the police, so he left.
“The following day, he brought a drink for me and after taking that drink, I couldn’t remember anything again. Until one day in the evening, around 7:30 p.m, Isaac came to my boss’s office and stopped him while I went to prepare tea for him.
“We had already agreed to carry out the murder before. He promised to give me 30, 000, but up till now he hasn’t given me. He collected N100,000 from his boss who was dragging position with my boss to commit the murder. We were arrested and put in jail, but the Indian man who contracted us to carry out the act was granted bail.
“But me and Isaac were charged to court and convicted to life imprisonment in Kuje. We were there until when Boko Haram people came and free us.”
