In Kaduna Ibrahim Abdullahi the elder brother of Kadade Abdullahi has confessed that he hired assassins to kill Kadede his brother just because their dad trusted him more.

He confessed this while speaking to the newsmen after he was arrested by the Police Intelligence Response Team attached to Operation Puff Adder at Kateri Annex in Kaduna State.

“My brother sold some cows for my father and made N1.7m. He came back and started making a noise about it. My father was happy about it and asked him (Kadade) to keep the money. I expected him to share the money between us but he asked my brother to take it to the bank the next day.

I was so broke that day and asked my father for money. He started insulting me and asked me to learn to be responsible like Kadade. I was bitter and immediately called Haruna (Amadu) and told him about the money in our house.

I told them (Amadu and the hired assassins) to come that night and kill my brother. I thought that his death would make my father allow me to control some of his businesses. That night, around 12 midnight, about five of them came. They knocked on my window as a sign to let me know that they were around. They searched everywhere for my brother and when they found him, they killed him as I instructed. My father was devastated but I consoled him that it was Allah’s wish.

I collected N100,000 as my share of the money since I was the one who brought the job. It was later that we learned that my brother kept part of the money in a safe in the market.

The police came to our residence and arrested our neighbors because they all knew about the money Kadade made from selling father’s cows. They were later released and my brother was buried and I thought the matter was over.

I was surprised when the police came back with Hassan (Amadu) and arrested me. I am terribly sorry and hope that my family will forgive me. I now regret my action.

My father is married to four wives and has many children. I don’t know what is special about Kadade. I was never sent to a regular school but an Arabic school in Kaduna. It was only Kadade that attended primary and secondary schools. 

My father said it was not necessary for the rest of us to go to school and that he wanted all of us to become farmers. Yet he kept calling us illiterates who could not speak English.” Ibrahim said, 

Ibrahim and his late brother were said to be indigenes of Amana maiKasuwa village in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, children of a cattle farmer.
