Two suspects – Bashir Muhammad, 23, and Nasiru Salisu, 27 – have been arrested in connection with the killing of Captain Abdulkareem Na’Allah, the eldest son of Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah. They revealed why they killed the pilot.

Speaking to journalists at the Police Headquarters on Thursday, the prime suspect – Bashir Muhammad, a resident of Rabah road in Kaduna North Local Government Area, said they gained access into the pilot’s house to steal his car.

Bashir, who claimed he did not know his victim, said: “One day, we were passing in front of his house, three of us including Nasiru, me (Bashir) and Usman DanKano when we saw a car parked inside the deceased house.

“DanKano casually said we will come and pick the car from the house.

“The next day while it was raining, we gained access into the vicinity of the deceased residence, climbed the rooftop and removed the nails of the roofing sheets.

“When we got inside the house, Nasiru and I opened the door for Usman who was holding a torchlight.

“The light from the torch attracted the attention of the deceased and immediately he saw us, he picked something from under his bed and he started struggling with Nasiru.

“During the struggle, the deceased fell down and when he fell down, we used a rope for hanging clothes to tire him and he never spoke again. We picked up the car keys and left.”

How I got involved – Salisu

The other suspect, Nasiru Salisu, 27, said Bashir involved him in the operation.

Nasiru, a first-time offender who lives in Kawo, said Bashir tied the victim up after the struggle.

According to him, “I bought 23 bags of rice with my share of the money but it was intercepted by customs.”

The third suspect, identified as Usman DanKano, is still at large.

Parading the 25 suspects, the Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Muhammad Jalige, said the suspects in the murder case have confessed to having carried out the offence and further stated that the vehicle was sold in the Niger Republic at the rate of N1 million with the proceed shared amongst them.

He said an investigation is ongoing with the aim of arresting the fleeing suspect and be charged to court for diligent prosecution.

On August 29, 2021, the late Abdulkareem was found dead in his room at his Malali GRA, Kaduna.
