Confessing to his crime, Dominic said:
“He was giving me food but not pocket money. Life was so difficult for me, I left my village thinking I would get a job in Abuja. Then, on the night of November 2, he gave me N60 to buy bread for us to eat and water. Later I told him I wanted to go back to the village and would need about N4000. We ate the bread and later watched television together. .
In the middle of the night while he was sleeping, I took a cutlass from under the bed and cut his throat. After killing him, I took N10,000 from his pocket and his phone and ran home, to Cross River. I regret killing him because I was hungry and needed pocket money, so the devil pushed me to the evil thing I did."
The sad incident occurred on November 2.
