A middle-aged Kaduna State resident, Ibrahim Abdullahi has landed himself into police custody for allegedly having hand in the death of his older brother whom he described as their father’s dearest.
Anaedoonline.com understands that the young man who is just 20 years of age was arrested by the Special Intelligence Response Team, IRT, under the leading of the state Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari, for allegedly responsible for the death of Kadade Abdullahi, his older brother.
It was reported that Ibrahim was arrested alongside his gang members at Amana Maikasuwa Village in Kaduna State.
We learnt that Ibrahim belongs to a gang of cattle rustler and kidnappers operating in the state. However, he ran out of luck as the operatives of the IRT attached to Operation Puff Adder, Kateri Annex, arrested him and his members following the death of his blood brother.
Upon his arrest, Ibrahim admitted to the crime and his relationship with the robbers, kidnapping and cattle rustling group.
He, however, blamed their father for his actions, noting that his elder brother has always been their father’s dearest among all his children.
Ibrahim said; “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,(the older brother) was special.
“I was sent to an Arabic school in Kaduna, while only my older brother 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 learnt 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 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.
“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.
He added, “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 k**l 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.“
