Kenneth Bitrus Yakubu, the younger brother to the embattled former Group Managing director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) - Andrew Yakubu was whisked away on February 3rd, when the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) raided his house in Sabuwan Tasha slum of Kaduna State.
According to reports from DailyNigerian, neither Kenneth nor his elder brother, Andrew live in the house but just a house keeper. The now famous house, is their old family house. Bitrus Yakubu lives in a bigger house in the city.
Kenneth Bitrus, is in his 50s and is a 1989 graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. Bitrus is described as a very religious person.
Aside the alleged ill-gotten wealth found under his custody, friends describe Kenneth as a good-natured person with good Christian upbringing.
“Bitrus is very religious person. You know their father was a pastor. All I know is that Bitrus is a business man and runs a private school with his wife.
“Even Andrew is a good man. He built a vocational centre named after his parents, Maryamu and Yakubu, in our village. A lot of our youths are trained in the centre,” said Jonathan Ayuba, a resident of Ma Mazah village in Kaduna State.
Security sources said Kenneth will be arraigned alongside his brother, Andrew next week.
The next couple of months could be turbulent for both parties as the suspected fraud has gained international attention with pictorial evidences that have remained mind-boggling since emergence.
