Police command in Kaduna has arrested one Ibrahim Abdullahi and 22-year-old Hassan Amadu over the murder of Kadade Abdullahi at Amana Maikasuwa Village in the State.
The arrest was made by Inspector General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT) headed by a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari.
Ibrahim, a 20-year-old cattle rustler and alleged kidnapper was nabbed after operatives of IRT attached to Operation Puff Adder, Kateri Annex, arrested a member of the 5-man gang that killed Kadede.
Upon being arrested and questioned by the police, Ibrahim admitted to being a member of a gang that specialises in robbery, kidnapping and cattle rustling.
He also confessed to masterminding the robbery and killing of his elder brother, Kadede, because he is his father’s favourite.
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.
The murder suspect explained;
I was sent to 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 English Language.
How can I speak English Language when my father did not send me to school? I only learnt how to cultivate corn and rear cows. I had to get married to convince him that I was old enough to handle responsibilities.
Ibrahim stated that as soon as he got married, his father gave him only 20 cows and two plots of land, saying;
I carried out the killing of my blood brother with the help of my gang members was because 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 realised from selling his cattle. The money was kept with my brother.
He revealed that his brother sold some cows and made N1.7million, which made their father happy, and Kadede never stopped bragging about it.
Ibrahim stressed that;
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.
The murder suspect added;
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.
According to Ibrahim, he regrets his actions but thought his father would hand over some of his businesses to him since his brother is dead.
