A 23-year-old identified as Sunday Jamilu Abubakar of Babako village in Wushishi Local Government Area has been arrested by the Niger State Police Command for an alleged murder.
Abubakar was reportedly trailed and arrested by a team of policemen, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Bala Elkana, told SUNDAY PUNCH at his office in Minna.
According to Elkana, the suspect was arrested for killing one Ibrahim Gyagyah, who “prevented him from stealing two fowls that did not belong to him.”
The suspect, amid the heated argument, was said to have used a cutlass to hit the victim on the head leading to instant death, before the body was dumped in a river.
The PPRO said the operatives discovered the victim’s body at the bank of the river and arrested the suspect, who was said to have confessed to the crime.
Elkana said, “We have had enough of these wicked acts in the state. We will continue to deal with them till they change to better people in the society.’’
Elkana stated that the suspect would be charged to court upon conclusion of investigation.
