Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Kebbi State has arrested two hired killers and the person who contracted them to kill one Gari Mamman of Lahore village in Suru Local Government Area of Kebbi State.
According to Suleman Ibrahim Mafara, State Commandant of the NSCDC, one Alhaji Mamman contracted two people, Mande and Manu, to kill him.
The two hired killers, who were contracted for N80,000, had already been paid an advance of N60,000, he said.
On the night they came for him, the assassins could not find their victim in his house, so they set it ablaze.
Mafara said the suspects were arrested after an intelligence report was received, and a Dane gun was found in one of the killers’ houses after a thorough search was conducted.
The person who hired the hired killers, Alhaji Mamman, told the media that he did not hire them to kill Gari Mamman but only to teach him a lesson.
When asked why he wanted to teach Gari Mamman a lesson, he said he suspected that he was the person who killed his father three months ago.
