Alleged Killers Of Senator Na’Allah’s Son remanded

Late Abdulkarim Na’Allah

A High Court in Kaduna State has ordered that the three suspected killers of a son of Senator Bala Ibn Na’allah, Abdulkarim Na’Allah, be remanded in a correctional centre pending ruling in the bail application.

The Kaduna State Government charged Bashir Mohammed, Salisu Nasiru and Suleiman Salisu with criminal conspiracy, armed robbery and culpable homicide.

Justice Amina Bello gave the order after the prosecution counsel, E.J. Jatau, pleaded that the defendants be remanded.

The judge adjourned the matter to June 8th, 2022 for ruling in the bail application.

Earlier, Jatau told the court that the defendants committed the offence on August 29, 2021, on the Umar Gwandu Road Kaduna.

He said that the defendants robbed Abdulkarim of his valuables including a Samsung phone, an Apple tablet, a Lexus G5-350 2013 model vehicle with chassis No. JI4CE1BLOD5003878 and stabbed him to death.

He said that the offence contravened the provisions of sections 6(b), 1(2)(a) &(b) of the Armed Robbery and Firearms (Special Provision) Act Cap R11LFN 2004 and section 190 of the Kaduna State Pedal Code, 2017.

The defendants had pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Counsel to Nasiru and Salisu, Mr. Kimi Abang, pleaded with the court to grant his client’s bail.

Abang, while moving his bail application, said he relied on his written address and the medical report issued by a government medical practitioner, is seeking the court’s permission to admit the defendants to bail.

He then assured the court that the defendants will not jump bail as they will provide reliable sureties as would be needed.
