Alleged killer of Gen Shuwa says, I was blackmailed by the military
The 35 years old suspected mastermind of General Mamam Shuwa death, Mohammed Sani Nafiu has declared that he was framed by the military.
Nafiu who was paraded by military in Kano Tuesday told newsmen that he knows nothing about the planning and assassination of the civil war hero. Looking calm and steady, the high profile suspect who spoke in Hausa without mincing words said “I don’t know anything about General Shuwa’s death”
Speaking further, Nafiu said “I was arrested from my home to the detention centre, and they are trying to frame me. I must make myself clear, I have no hand in General Shuwa’s death”.
The Boko Haram kingpin was arrested by the military at Hotoro General area of Kano municipal and a GSM and a total sum of three hundred naira was recovered from him.
However, a senior military officer told Journalists shortly after a brief encounter with the suspects to disregard his stand.
The senior who do not want his name in print said that ” the suspects is a pathological liar, what we know of him was different from the picture he tried to paint before the world”.
According to him “immediately after General Shuwa was martyr, this suspect relocated from his country home and his arrest was a product of sustained intelligence operation”.
