The police in Jigawa State have arrested one Dahiru Adamu 25, of Agufa village in Miga Local Government Area for killing, one Ishak Sa’ed, who allegedly trespassed into his house with the intention to r*pe his bride, DailyTrust reports.
It was gathered that Adamu ambushed his victim when he came to his house for the fourth time in four days allegedly with the intention to r*pe his bride. Adamu attacked Sa'ed with a stick. The victim died later after undergoing treatment, state police spokesman, SP Abdul Jinjiri revealed.
Jinjiri said the accused was at present in police custody undergoing interrogation.
The accused said by tradition in their community, marriage ceremony lasts for about a week, adding that during the period, the friends of the bride usually stayed with her until the ceremony ended.
The accused said it was during this period that the suspected rapist visited his house located at the outskirts of the village on four occasions with an intention to rape his bride.
“When he (rapist) came for the fourth day with a plan to perfect his ulterior motive, I ambushed him and attacked him using a stick. I hit him twice on his back and his leg,” he admitted.
In another incident, the police in the state have arrested one Mohammed Sabitu, 25, for allegedly killing a Fulani woman, whom he accused to be among the people that destroyed his farms.
Command spokesman, SP Abdul Jinjiri, said the accused was on his farm at the outskirts of his village, Bula, in Taura Local Government Area, when he saw the woman and descended on her because she was Fulani, an ethnic group he had been accusing of destroying his farmlands.
He added that the suspect used his hoe to hit her, leading to serious injuries.
The command’s PPRO said the woman died before she could be rushed to the hospital.
But the accused said he killed the woman in self-defence. He alleged that she pounced on him and that out of fear, he defended himself by hitting her with his hoe.
The accused said he did not hit her with the intention to kill her.
On whether he had grudges against the woman, the accused said he bore no grudges against any ethnic group.
“The woman was destined to die in such a circumstance. I did not hit her with the intention to kill her. It was the work of the devil,” he said.
