Houseboy kills Boss
A BOY identified as Idrisu Muhammadu, has killed his girlfriend, Fatima Isah, for allegedly flirting with his sibling, claiming she was about to marry her before her unfaithfulness.
The suspect, who resides at Evutagi Village in Katcha Local Government Area of Niger State is presently cooling his feet in police detention following his arrest.
According to him, his victim was having sexual affair with his elder brother, even after her father, Isah Evutagi, had given her hand to him in marriage, despite the two brothers’ tussle for the deceased’s love.
“I told my brother to leave Fatimah for me because I planned to marry her but he would not listen to me and he kept on seeing her until one day, I lost my temper and killed her. Look at what it has resulted to. I am now a murderer. I am going to spend all my life in jail from the age of 16. It is unfortunate,” he said.
Confirming the incident, Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, Mohammad Abubakar, stated that the suspect would be arraigned in court after investigation, adding that he confessed to having killed his victim with a cutlass, for allegedly seeing his brother.
