An armed robbery suspect, Shuaibu Rabi, was amongst the alleged culprits culpable for the murder of Nigeria’s former Chief of Defense Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (retd.) has confessed to the police on what transpired.
In a video now available online, Rabi said they had planned to rob Badeh after learning he was travelling to Nasarawa state with cash in a bid to buy a piece of land.
The suspect conducted the interview in the Hausa language.
The 25-year-old suspect said after killing Badeh, he and his friends stole a bag which contained a huge sum of money.
Rabi said, “What happened was that, on a certain day, my elder brother went to a market, where he met with one Churuma.
“Churuma told him that he got information that an old soldier (Badeh) wanted to buy a parcel of land but would be buying the land in cash.”
In his statement of how Alex Badeh was killed, he mentioned that the late military man tried to run over them with his car before he was shot dead by his gang of robbers.
