AY: Where we can’t win, we make arrangement there, we scatter elections if we don’t win.

Journalists: Please, is the governor or Saraki aware of the robbery? Did they send you for the operation?

AY: No! They did not send us for the robbery but because we are their political thugs, that’s what led us to the robbery.

Journalists: You have access to governor and senate president. There’s nothing you need that they won’t give you. Why did you have to engage in robbery with all these opportunities?

AY: It is devil that pushed us.

Journalists: Please, is the governor or Saraki aware of the robbery? Did they send you for the operation?
