Kenneth Bitrus Yakubu, the younger brother to the embattled former managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, was whisked away on February 3 when EFCC raided his house in Sabuwan Tasha slum of Kaduna.

According to neighbours, neither Kenneth nor Andrew lives in the house but a house keeper.

“It is their old family house. Bitrus too lives in a bigger house in the city. Only the housekeeper lives in the house.

Kenneth, who is in his 50s, is a 1989 graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
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.
