He said that he only knew about the killing of his wife and son when he opened his eyes at the police station.
“When I came back to the house to give my wife money to buy some food items because I did not drop enough money for them when I was going out in the morning. When I came back in the afternoon, I saw my wife with two men who were not known to me.
“I became so angry and pained because I so much loved and trusted her. She tried to explain to me, but I went to somewhere to take my Indian hemp to calm myself down.
“But after taking some overdose, surprisingly, I found out that I became worse and lost my senses and control.
“I could not control myself any longer.
I believed that extraordinary spirit entered me and I could not help it.
“I could not believe that I did that to a woman I loved so much. I believed she was the only thing I had in life.
“I only came back to my senses when I opened my eye in the police station.
“I believed that what killed my wife and son was the demon inside me and not me.
” Honestly, I felt totally lost and I wished that situation could be reversed in my life,” he said .
According to him, they were married for five years after six years of dating.
‘I was ordained’
“I know I committed a crime, which I did not do with my clear eyes. I was ordained an evangelist in 2012, then I was doing well but when I begin to fall out of grace, my pastor told me about the consequences.
“He told me that time was coming when I will suffer for my evil action and that God does not want me to suffer. I cannot believe him until now,” he said.
He called on everybody who wanted to live a good life to desist from taking hard drugs and Indian hemp ‘because they can only destroy.’
“Let’s stay away from drugs and Indian hemp; it is bad. It doesn’t kill a man but it invokes evil spirit in a man’s life.
“Whenever you take it, you will know that evil spirit has been introduced into your system, which does not belong to you as a person.
“Please let everybody stay away from drugs. I want to go back to my God, if I have the second chance ” he said.
