“Zubby Michael is my favorite Nollywood actor and he is good at kidnapping roles.
“I decided to try out some of the methods used by Zubby to kidnap children and adults in the movies.
“I started by visiting several schools around Ojo to see the possibility of picking children without anyone noticing.”
“I am sorry for causing his family so much pain. I am not a cultist or an armed robber. I do not have a gang.
“I just trained myself by watching Zubby Michael. My parents trained me very well, I was just impatient and greedy.”
