they had previously destroyed his property. However, they disobeyed him and he
subsequently went into his home, got his gun, shot at them and injured nine of

He said: “I told them to
stop playing football in my area and they refused to listen to me. They have
used the ball to destroy things in my house and that was why I warned them. I

suspected them to be members of a secret society. I regret it now and I thank
God no one died.”
