The Kebbi State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested two hired killers and their contractor in Lahore village of Suru Local Government Area.
The suspected would-be assassins were allegedly sent to kill one Gari Mamman of Kebbi State.
Parading the suspects, the State Commandant of NSCDC, Suleman Ibrahim Mafara, alleged that one Alhaji Mamman contracted two persons, Mande and Manu to kill Gari Mamman.
According to him, the suspects were offered N80,000 and received an advance payment of N60,000.
He added that after the assassins could not find their victim in his house on the fateful night, they set the house ablaze.
Speaking to the media, Alhaji Mamman, said he did not hire them with a view to kill him but only to teach him a lesson.
On why he wanted to teach him a lesson, he said because he suspected that he was the person who killed his father three months ago.
