“In December, one of my bosses, Mr. Ejike, was also posted to work on the train. He reported me to our superiors and I was reposted to the Kajola Railway Terminus.

"I was pained; I have a wife and a child. I decided to do something that would make him to sit at home for two months.

“I invited my friends and told them to injure my boss in the leg. I took them to his house in Oposuru.
