We killed our victim’s daughter, mother – 20-year-old robbery suspect

A suspected member of a robbery gang has revealed how they killed the mother and daughter of one Babangida Muhammad while attempting to rob his residence at Dan-Tudu Quarters in Jibiya Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Anas Dahiru 20, narrating how it happened, while being paraded at the police command before newsmen on Wednesday said: “We were four in number, myself, Muhammed Aliyu, Buhari Umar and Samaila Musa, armed with cutlasses, pestle, and heavy metal.

“We scaled the fence and entered Muhammadu Babangida’s residence to rob.

“Then an old woman saw us and wanted to raise alarm, Muhammadu, our gang leader, quickly used the pestle he was carrying to smash her down.

“I also noticed the daughter saw us and wanted to run away. So, I ran after her, knocked her down, and started strangulating her before Dahiru, one of us used the heavy metal he was carrying to hit her on the head and then she passed out.”

However, Dahiru said nemesis caught up with them when he decided to attend the burial rites of their victims and he was identified by one of the children who witnessed the incident and was arrested by the police.

SP. Gambo Isah, the state Police Public Relations Officer, while briefing pressmen on the development said aside from killing Muhammadu Babangida’s daughter and 70-year-old mother, the suspects also injured four of his children in the attack.
