“My gang killed Honour­able Mante and kidnapped three of his family mem­bers. He offended me but I am not the only one that he offended. He used to give people money but he never gave me.

The gang leader also stat­ed that “I did not want to kill him but Abdulhassan told me that he also hated the honourable and we should kill him. It was even Abdul­hassan that facilitated how we located him and gained entrance into his house.”

On the killing of the DPO, the gang leader said “It was all of us that hated the DPO. When he was the DPO of Ta­fawa Balewa police station, he was always giving us a tough time. He was arrest­ing our members and pre­venting us from operating in that area.”

Another member of the gang, Alhassan also con­fessed to be a member of the gang. He, however, claimed that he did not follow them to his house for the opera­tion and that he only pro­vided the gang with infor­mation.
