Balarabe said he used his share of the money in purchasing foreign parboiled rice, but that he was intercepted by personnel of Department of Customs and Excise at the border, and the rice confiscated.

“I bought 23 bags of rice with my own share of the money but it was intercepted by customs”, he said.

The other suspect, Muhammad, a resident of Rabah road in Kaduna metropolis, said he never knew the deceased prior to the incident.

“One day, I, Nasiru, and one Usman DanKano (now at large), were passing in front of his (deceased) house; we saw a car parked inside the house; DanKano casually said we will come and steal the car from the house.

“The next day it rained, so we decided to go to the house; when we got inside, I and Nasiru opened the door for Dankano, who was holding a torchlight.

The light from the torch attracted the attention of the deceased and immediately he saw us; he picked something from under his bed and started struggling with Balarabe.

When asked Muhammad if poverty pushed him committed the crime, he said his parents provided him with basic necessities as best as they could.
