A personal aide of Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, Abba Abbey Gidan Haki, was murdered by his ex-lover, according to sources.
It was gathered that Haki’s body was found on the road to Durbawa in the Kware Local Government of the state.
There are now claims that his estranged lover betrayed the deceased who was married with five kids.
According to police sources, the lady whose name was not revealed has been arrested alongside some of the suspects.
It was reported that the deceased was planning to marry her before they parted ways, DailyTrust gathered.
There were claims that after their separation, they kept in touch until the man was abducted.
A police source noted that the lady conspired with the new lover she met after parting ways with Haki.
She was said to have conspired against her ex-lover so as to raise money for the wedding she was planning with the new man.
“When they realised that he had a zero-account, they killed him,” he said.
Police have arrested seven people, including the lady and her groom to be, in connection with the case.
Another source said that shortly before the man was abducted, the lady called and asked him to meet her somewhere.
When they met in the company of her groom to be, she was said to have introduced him as her brother.
“She then pleaded with him to take them to somewhere which he did and as he was trying to reverse his car after dropping them, one Volkswagen car blocked him from behind.”
The source added that the occupants of the vehicle came out with an AK-47 rifle and forced the deceased away.
It was said that the abductors seized Haki’s mobile phone and checked his bank account which was empty at the time.
“The leader of the gang then told the lady and her boyfriend that he would kill him since they would not get anything from him.”
“He then went back to where they tied him up and ran over him with a vehicle,” the source told Daily Trust.”
The Spokesman of the Sokoto State Police Command, ASP Sanusi Abubakar, who confirmed the development, said only the girl and one other person were in the police net.
He added that one AK47 rifle was recovered from them, adding that investigation is ongoing.
