Bullet Maker Arrested At Iyoha Village Etsako W. After Brother, Jurist Confraternity Member Shot Rival Cultist In Edo
Police in Edo state have arrested a man identified as John Omosuanfo for allegedly using expended cartridges to make bullets.
The 25 year old was arrested at Iyoha village in Etsako West LGA of Edo state after his brother, Omomoh Omosuanfo, a well known member of the Jurist Confraternity shot a man, Lucky who refused to join his cult.
Here is his John’s confession.
“I picked expended cartridge and removed the under. I covered it back with slippers and loaded it with local gunpowder. I used it for hunting animals. I don’t sell the bullets. I was arrested because my brother used one of the cartridges to shoot some boys.
“My brother was having an issue with a boy at a bar. My brother told the boy to join Jurist Confraternity, but the boy said he would prefer to join Vikings. My brother went to his house to make peace, but fight started. The boys came to our house and used cutlass to attack our father.
“That was why my brother shot them.”
John’s brother, Omomoh, who was also paraded, said:
“Sunday wanted to initiate Lucky into Jurist, but Lucky refused. He asked them to leave the bar since they did not want to join Jurist.
“He went to their house to apologise, but fight started. So I destroyed their property because they injured me. They came to our house and didn’t find us. They used machete to attack our father, consequently our younger brother shot them.”
But Sunday Anthony, Lucky’s brother, who was also paraded, said he returned home from Jattu and saw some boys fighting his brothers and using cutlass to attack their father.
“The boys destroyed our belongings and used cutlass to attack our father. We went to their house to retaliate, attacking their father with a cutlass. As we were leaving, Sunday brought a gun to shoot us.”
