A suspected criminal has confessed to killing Alex Badeh, former chief of defence staff.
Badeh died from gunshot wounds sustained in an attack on December 18. He was returning from his farm along Abuja-Keffi road when he was shot dead.
In the video, Shuaibu Rabi, the suspect said he took part in the murder of Badeh because the former defence chief resisted being robbed of the money in his possession.
“What happened was that, on a certain day, my elder brother went to a market where he met with one Churuma,”Rabi spoke in Hausa.
“But when he (Badeh) 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 we opened the bag, the money was beyond what I had ever seen before.”
He added that they were able to abduct Badeh’s friend who was in the car.
