Allah destined me to rob – Herdsman

The Oyo state police command on Friday paraded a Fulani herdsman, Amidu Umoru, and his accomplice, Umoru Sanda for alleged armed robbery and murder.

Umoru, 20, who was arrested by the Oyo State Police Command, along Igangan/Iganna road via Iwere Ile in Oke-Ogun area of the state, said despite being a herdsman, he was destined to rob.

The state Commissioner of Police, CP, eye Oyebade, while parading the suspects before newsmen, said Umoru and Sanda were accused of attacking one Kehinde Rafiu, beating him with a shepherd club and machete before robbing him of his motorcycle.

According to Umoru, his accomplice first attacked the deceased with machete before he (Umoru) used the club to beat him to a state of coma because he put up a fight with them.

The victim later died in a hospital because of the fatality of the injury.

He said, “Sanda cut the motorcycle owner with his cutlass and I used the club to beat him. He was seriously injured but not dead. I normally used the club to shepherd cattle. After leaving him for dead, we took his motorcycle away to sell. We were later arrested by members of the Odua Peoples’ Congress who handed us over to the police.

“I don’t know why I did it. I had no motive. I cannot even ride a motorcycle. I am a herdsman and this is my first time of being arrested or robbing people. Whatever Allah desires must come to past. I think it is my destiny to rob,” Umoru added.
