THE NIGERIA Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Bauchi has arrested a university student for allegedly stabbing a 17-year-old boy to death in Misau Local Government Area of the state.
The Commandant of the Corps, Ilelaboye Oyejide, who confirmed the arrest on Sunday in Bauchi, said the incident occurred on October 20, 2023.
He said the command received information that the lifeless body of a secondary school student, Umar Usman, was found wrapped and dumped in a white cloth along Misau bypass.
“He was quickly taken to the General Hospital, Misau, where he was certified dead and handed over to the family for burial.
“This is a case of culpable homicide,” Oyejide said, adding that the command deployed intelligence personnel to Misau to investigate and bring the perpetrators to book.
“After series of investigations by the operatives, one Abdullahi Ibrahim, a 500-level student of Veterinary Medicine, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, was arrested.
“We came to realise that there was a communication chat between the suspect and the deceased.
“In the communication, we saw where the suspect enticed the deceased with homosexual love and showed him his naked picture.
“When the deceased went to meet him, somehow, he was stabbed in the stomach, and wrapped in a white cloth and dumped where he was found,” he said.
According to Oyejide, the suspect would be charged to court. (NAN)
