“In my state of hopelessness and financial frustration, I met a bad friend simply known as Eche who introduced me to this one chance work though he is late now.
“I used to deliver #5,000 to bus owner daily and I share #10,000 with my conductor every day.
“When this guy, Eche introduced me to this one chance work I started making big money until I was arrested.
The second suspect Shoko said, “I have been managing the small coins I used to get as a bus conductor until this Idowu came to introduce this one chance work to me.
