Eke, who claimed to be a graduate of Mass Communication from Enugu State University, said he was attracted by the huge sum of money he saw the cashier attached to the pool office count when he went to play pool... He said:
“I was attracted by the huge amount of money the cashier was counting in the office that I could not resist because I have not seen that amount of money before.
I was trapped after the operation because I suspected that people were aware that somebody was robbing the office. I thank God that the police were contacted and they came and rescued me. If not, I wouldn’t have known what would have happened to me if I was caught by the mob."
