August 11, 2017 – Confession Of Edo Farmer Who Kills Man For Stealing 35 Bunches Of Plantain At Odighi Village In Ovia North

A small scale farmer in Ovia North East LGA of Edo state is awaiting trial for killing one Jonathan, a Kleptomaniac who stole 35 bunches of plantain from his farm.

45-year-old Moses Erutuya was among the 43 criminals paraded in Benin City yesterday.

In his confession, Moses said Jonathan had been stealing from him since 2007.

His confession;

“I started the farm in 1998. In 2007 while waiting for the plantain to mature, somebody went there and stole 60 bunches.

I complained and was told nobody will guard my farm for me. Since then, I have been monitoring the farm. Luck ran against him this 2017 when he stole 35 bunches.

I traced him to where he wanted to sell them.

“He said the plantain was not mine. He stole seven bunches from my farm. I asked him to go and show me where he got others. On our way, he stopped.

The wood he used to hold his bike, I took it and hit him on the head and he died. His family was looking for him.

They came to me and I told them I left him to go but I later took them to where the body is. I want government to forgive me.”
