“I only use the Pepper Spray (teargas spray) on him, before pushing him, I don’t kill him with any object, I was annoyed with his action for rejecting part of the money and I only pushed him, and I hurriedly left with my car when I discovered that he has gone to the world beyond, I actually regret my actions, and I plead for mercy from the authority,” Idowu said.
