In an interview, Haruna confessed that his uncle, Danjibga, had driven him away from his house for noticing a theft habit in him, adding that, “Before he drove me out of his house, I contacted him twice seeking him to stand as a guarantor for me to join the Nigerian Army and later Police, but he all refused due to my devilish habit.

“I stayed in my partner’s room after I was driven away by the deceased. There, we mapped out plans on how we would kidnap him and subsequently demand reasonable money as ransom that could be enough for me to start business, but my deceased uncle started dragging with us to the extent he made us annoyed, we finally decided to kill him so that there would be no traces,” Mansur said.
