Fresh Graduate Of Federal College Of Technical Education, Potiskum, Confesses To The Killing Of 24 Year Old Girl friend In Yobe
Muhammed Adamu, the suspected killer of a 24 year old woman in Damaturu of Yobe state has made his confession statement to the state police command.
The Yobe Commissioner of Police, Abdulmaliki Sumonu who confirmed the arrest as well as the confession of the thirty year old, told newsmen in Damaturu on Tuesday.
Hauwa was said to have left home on 29 May to buy a loaf of bread and did not return. She was later found dead on the same day.
Sumonu said, “I am very happy to tell you that the perpetrator of the 29th May killing of Hauwa Muhammad has been apprehended and has made a confessional statement”
The suspect who was also brought to the press conference confessed to the killing of Hauwa, saying that he was in a relationship with her.
Read his statements:
“My name is Muhammed Isa Adamu from Potiskum LG. I started dating Hauwa since 2014. She was obedient to me. She never offended me.
“I have been abusing drugs for almost five years. I even went to Azare General Hospital to seek medical advice in order to get rid of my addiction.
“I tried as much as possible to convince my family to meet Hauwa’s over our marital arrangement but my effort became unsuccessful.
“Eventually another guy started dating her. That was the beginning of our problem. She told me that if my family could not meet hers, I should allow the other guy to do so.
“Apart from that, there was no problem between the two of us”, Adamu added
“One day I didn’t know what happened to me, I took my “Exol” and decided to end the lives of both of us. I killed her alone with a knife”, Adamu said.
“I equally wanted to kill myself. May her soul rest in peace: she stopped me from doing that. While she was bleeding, she said I should not kill myself.
“She further advised me, before she bled to death, that I should repent and seek Allah’s forgiveness. I then promised her not to kill myself and that I will report myself to the police.
“Which is why when the DPO ‘C’ division called me, I reported at once”, the suspect said.
Adamu, who is a fresh graduate from Federal College of Technical Education, Potiskum, affiliated to the Federal University of Technology, Minna, advised against hard drugs in order to avoid the state in which he has found himself.
