September 17, (THEWILL) – Suspected killers of Capt Abdulkarim Bala Na’Allah, the son of Senator Bala Na’Allah, have explained how they killed the pilot in his Malali residence, Kaduna.
THEWILL reported that Abdulkareem was found dead in his room at his residence on August 29, 2021.
The two suspects paraded by Kaduna Police Command were Bashir Muhammad, 23, and Nasiru Salisu, 27. The third suspect, Usman DanKano, is still at large.
Speaking to journalists at the Police headquarters, the prime suspect, Bashir Muhammad, a resident of Rabah road, said they gained access into the deceased’s house to steal his car.
Bashir, who claimed he did not know his victim, said: “I did not know the deceased. 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 roof top 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 touch light, the light from the touch 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.”
The other suspect, Salisu, 27, said Bashir involved him in the operation.
Salisu, who lives in Kawo, said Bashir tied the victim up after the struggle.
He said, “I bought 23 bags of rice with my share of the money but it was intercepted by customs.”
Parading the suspects, Kaduna Police Command spokesman, ASP Muhammad Jalige, said the suspects have confessed to carrying out the offence, He stated that the vehicle was sold in Niger Republic for N1 million and shared.
He said the investigation is ongoing with the aim of arresting the fleeing suspect after which they would be charged to court for prosecution.
