Nurudeen Ogundairo, a self-acclaimed gospel artist who was arrested by Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, FSARS, in Ogun State for Armed Robbery claims he went into crime to finance the release of his Gospel album.
The so-called Gospel artist was on Tuesday paraded alongside 36 others arrested for various crimes at Eleweran Police Headquarters in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Ogundairo who was believed to be the leader of the gang said that he took to crime to source money for the production of his first album which was scheduled for launch on July 24.
“I am a gospel musician. I needed money to enable me to produce my maiden album and I got involved in robbery to raise money for the project. In fact, I had picked a date of July 24 to release the album to the public after the production”
“I hope I can still be forgiven by the police and God over my action. It was in a bid to make headway in my musical career that I took to robbery,” he said.
