25-year-old Man Contracts Friend To Kill Father Over Inheritance

Operatives of the Niger State Police Command have arrested a 25-year-old man Abubakar Mohammed Baba, for allegedly conspiring with a friend to kill his 52-year-old father, Alhaji Mohammed Baba.

Police said the father was attacked and stabbed to death in his residence at Koropan community in Paikoro local government area of the state on October 13, 2021.

This was contained in a press statement signed and made available to newsmen by the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Wasiu Abiodun on Thursday in Minna.

According to the statement, “On 29/12/2021 at about 1030hrs, based on credible intelligence, Police operatives attached to Chanchaga Division arrested one Abubakar Mohammed Buba aged 25yrs ‘m’ of Gidan Madara area of Chanchaga, Minna.”

He added that during interrogation by the police, the suspect allegedly confessed to having conspired with 26-yr-old Aliyu Mohammed of Chanchaga who is presently at large to kill the deceased.

“He later led Police operatives to Tagwai-Dam where the body of the deceased was dumped after being severed and packed in a sack,” said the PPRO.

Abiodun added further that the suspect was said to have confessed further to have contracted the said Aliyu for N110,000.00 in which he paid a deposit of N50,000 and later paid the balance of N60,000 after selling some of the deceased’s properties.

“He claimed to have committed the act in order to quickly inherit the father’s properties,” DSP Wasiu Abiodun maintained.

The PPRO, however, assured that effort was ongoing to arrest the fleeing Aliyu Mohammed while the case was under investigation at SCID Minna, adding that the suspect will be arraigned in court for prosecution immediately after the investigation was concluded in the matter.
