Speaking to newsmen when he was paraded by the police, Kabir said, “My father is kind and I love him. He also takes care of me. But I attempted to kill him so that I can inherit the money he has. It all started when my friend’s father died and I saw that he was given a huge amount of money. From then, I thought of killing my dad too.
“The first attempt was in 2018, then I was in secondary school, when I used rat poison but my dad survived it. So, this time around I took his car without his consent and I had an accident and for over three months I didn’t go to the house. That was why I decided to just get a gun.
“One of my friends, Saifullahi Sani, called me and said there was a gun that we could use, but that it was for sale. I went and collected the gun, went to a nearby place and shot in the air. That was when I was arrested without even reaching home.”
