“I involved a friend of mine, Mike and we both went there and hid inside a tricycle, waiting for Mr Godstime, who we were told always opens the gate himself whenever he gets back from work.
“But on that day, it was his daughter that opened the gate. We went back the next day; it was still his daughter that opened the gate again.
“On the third day, it was Mr. Godstime that opened the gate and the plan was to rush to stab him in the neck, heart side on the chest and rib.
“Mike who was supposed to kill him, went to urinate and by the time he got back, Mr Godstime had gone inside and shut the gate, so, out of frustration we went back home.
“Thereafter I decided to go to Mr Godstime house alone to steal instead, as I jumped into his compound through the fence, somebody raised alarm, which attracted members of a vigilante in the area, who apprehended me. I regret my actions and I hope I will be given a second chance,” he begged.
