Ayomide who claims to be from Ekiti and a father of three children said he could not go beyond secondary school on account of the death of his father.
“To be able to fend for myself, I became an estate agent but I was arrested when I joined Aye confraternity due to unending bloody clashes with rival cult groups,” he told his interrogators.
“I was eventually charged to court and sent to prison.
“In the prison I met Ola, Tunde and others. We formed a car snatching gang when I came out of the prison.
