Kwara State Police Command Wednesday [Aug 24] paraded a 25-year-old man of the Mamba Fulani camp in Patigi LGA of the state, Abdullahi Adamu, for allegedly killing his mother, Khadijat Usman, 65, and elder brother’s wife, Ramatu Shagari.
Also paraded for the case of conspiracy and culpable homicide, were two suspects-Yahaya Umar and Abubakar Saletu of Kosubosu-who allegedly lured their friend into the bush and behead him. This was just as the command said it had arrested a prime suspect who perpetrated the latest killings of five people in Share area of Ifelodun LGA of the state.
The suspect was said to have committed the act to avenge the killing of his family and destruction of their houses during the December 2015 communal clash that broke out between Share and Tsaragi communities over age long dispute.
Parading the suspects before journalists in Ilorin, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Olusola Amore, said the command is not in a position to determine the mental state of the Fulani man but stressed that investigation was still ongoing, and that the suspect would be charged to court.
On the case of the two friends who connived to behead their friend, he said the suspects were found with human heads after a buyer which they approached to buy raised the alarm which led to their arrest.
The commissioner advised members of the public to always inform their family members about their whereabouts mostly with friends.
