The target turned out to be the young Corps member who had come back to the country to serve his nation after graduating from a university in Malaysia.

In his words, the suspect said:

"He (Aminu Bahago) said I should come and accompany him to the guy and I told him I wouldn’t want us to waste time there because I don’t want to be out for long in the night.

He went in, carried a gun and a knife and gave me the knife. When we got to the place, he showed me the guy from a distance, as we approached the car.

Aminu knocked on the door of the car as it was locked. The guy then opened the car and Aminu sat in front with him and the guy asked us what we wanted from him before Aminu started reminding him that he is dating his girlfriend.

Then Aminu drew him out of the car and Aminu told me that I should stab the guy with the knife.

I stabbed the guy in the back and after stabbing him, Aminu shot the guy with the gun on his leg."
