He said, "It has happened: Thieves have killed my father, Alhaji Muntari Mai Yadi, and they have shielded my brother Usman.
"From God we are and to Him, we shall return. Thieves came in our house and killed my father and went with my brother Usman and answered my phone with my motorcycle key plastic."
