Two residents of Amana Maikasuwa Village, located in the Kaduna State of Nigeria have been arrested by Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari and the inspector General Police Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT) for killing one Kadade Abdullahi who is identified as a brother to one of the convicts.
The two criminals taken into police custody, include 22-year-old Hassan Amadu and his accomplice 20-year-old Ibrahim Abdullahi.
These two convicts were apprehended in an operation set by the police investigative team and the IRT crew, to arrest a member who is part of the 5 man group, responsible for the death of Kadade Abdullahi.
These criminals are involved in kidnapping, cattle rustling and robbery activities that goes on in the town.
Confessing their crimes to the police investigative team, during their interrogations, they divulged to be members of the robbery and cattle rustling gang and Ibrahim Abdullahi also revealed that, he is responsible for the death of his brother Kadade Abdullahi as he ordered his gang crew to kill him because he was envious of how his father liked his brother.
“My father is married to four wives and has many children. I don’t know what is special about Kadade that our father wouldn’t ever take care of his other children without rubbing it on our faces that Kadade was special.
“I was sent to an Arabic school in Kaduna, while only Kadade attended primary and secondary schools. My father said it was not necessary for other of his children to go to school because he wanted every one of us to become farmers. And yet, he was always the first person to insult and call us illiterates, saying we couldn’t speak the English Language.
“How can I speak the English Language when my father did not send me to school? I only learned how to cultivate corn and rear cows. I had to get married to convince him that I was old enough to handle responsibilities.
“As soon as I got married, my father gave me only 20 cows and two plots of land. The reason I carried out the killing of my blood brother with the help of my gang members was that our father trusted my late brother much more than he trusts me. It is also because of the sum of N1, 700,000, which our father realized from selling his cattle. The money was kept with my brother.
“My brother sold some cows and made N1.7million and was making noise about it. My father was also very happy about it and asked him to keep the entire money.
“We expected him to share the money. That day I was so broke and asked my father for money. He started insulting me and asked me to learn to be responsible like Kadade.
“I was so bitter and I immediately called a member of our gang, Haruna, and told him about the money in my house. I asked them to come and also make sure that they kill my brother.
“Although I now regret my action but I thought that his death would make my father allow me to control some of his businesses. My father was devastated but I consoled him that it was Allah’s wish.
“In the morning, I went to the bush to meet them and they told me that it was only N300,000 that they found with my brother. I collected N100,000 as my share since I was the one who brought the job.“Ibrahim Narrated to the police during his confession
