Usman,35 yrs, murder friend in Birnin Kebbi over misunderstanding

A 35 years old man simply identified as Usman Muhammed, resident of Badariya area in Birnin Kebbi has murdered his friend, Abubakar, 41 years in front of his wife and elderly mother over unresolved misunderstanding.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Nafiu Abubakar who confirmed the incident, said that the victim and the suspect were friends before they had misunderstanding.

According to him, “the deceased and the assailant are friends who had misunderstanding only for Usman to go to late Abubakar house in broad daylight with a sharp matchet and attacked him on different places in the presence of his aged mother and his wife. The elderly mother who attempted to stop the hacking of her son was too weak to stop the carnage due to her age, in the process she sustained severe cuts on her hands”.

SP Nafiu added that, the suspect has been arrested and handed over to the homicide section for deep investigation as ordered by CP Chris Aimionowane, after which the suspect will be arraigned for prosecution.
