Armed robber says: I took to robbery to finance my gospel album
In his confessional statements, the suspect told the Police that he took to crime to source money for the production of his maiden album.
Ogundairo, 28, said the proposed album was scheduled for launch on July 24. Mr Ogundairo, who confessed to involvement in robbery said he regretted his action.
“I am a gospel musician. I needed money to enable me produce my maiden album and I got involved in a robbery to raise money for the project. In fact, I had picked a date of July 24 to release the album to the public after the production,” he said.
The suspect, who was arrested with two of his band boys, identified as Tunde Joseph and Ganiu Ajibode, who allegedly participated in the robbery operations, said he had learnt his lesson after spending over two months in detention.
“I hope I can still be forgiven by the police and God over my action. It was in a bid to make headway in my musical career that I took to robbery,” he stated.
