According to Odoputa, he was talked into drug trafficking by his friends in London.

He says he took the offer because he thought he could change his living conditions when he wasn’t getting any substantial movie roles, and when he could not afford to feed or house himself and his family.

He also mentioned that although his colleagues abandoned him then for obvious reasons, he doesn’t hold it against them as it was a time for him to learn a lesson.

Meanwhile, his major regret was letting his family down and letting his London friends take advantage of his situation by talking him into the act.
