“I urged them to stop playing football in my area, and they refused to listen to me,” Abduralman stated in an apologetic manner.

“I cautioned them since they had used the ball to destroy somethings in my house. They refused to leave when I requested them to.

“I shot the gun out of anger because I thought they were secret cult members.” I now regret it and am grateful that no one was killed.”
