Earlier we reported that the Nigeria Police Force has arrested five suspected killers of the former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh who was assassinated while returning from his farm along Abuja-Keffi Road on December 18, 2018.
Among Badeh’s five suspected killers that were arrested is an armed robber identified as Shuaibu Rabi.
In the video obtained by Punch during an interrogated by policemen in Hausa language, Shuaibu Rabi recounted how Alex Badeh was killed.
According to Rabi, they had gone to rob Badeh after learning he was coming to buy a piece of land in cash in Nasarawa state. During the attack, Badeh tried to run over them with his car before he was shot to death by his gang of robbers.
The 25-year-old suspect said after killing Badeh, he and his friends stole the bag which contained a huge sum of money.
Here is what he said in the video:
“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.
“He said we would trail the soldier (Badeh) on that day and we would block him and collect the money.
“So, on that day, when we saw him coming, Churuma signaled to us that it was him. Some of us stayed behind his vehicle in case he would reverse while Churuma stayed in front.
“But when he saw Churuma with a gun, he did not do like he wanted to reverse.
“He attempted to hit Churuma with his car but Churuma dodged to the side and then opened fire on him.
“After that, we opened the car and found a bag of money and went with it. When they opened the bag, the money was beyond what i had ever seen before.”
