I beheaded motorcyclist for refusing to surrender his motorcycle – Suspect lailasnews

The suspect who subsequently made away with his victim’s motorcycle, was arrested after the elder brother to the deceased, Amos Sunday, reported to the police that his brother did not return home from work.

An investigation which was launched by police operatives attached to Lapai Division, led to the arrest of the suspect who still had the deceased’s motorcycle at Kagbodu village in Lapai Local Government Area.

The suspect who confessed to have conspired with one Mohammed Yunusa, now at large, to attack the victim, added that he would not have killed Sunday if he had handed over his motorcycle to him without a struggle.

“He refused to hand over his motorcycle to me; so, I got angry and we beheaded him and zoomed off with the motorcycle.

“I don’t know what came over me; we are from the same state (Kogi) but we reside in Niger State. How do I explain myself to my kinsmen? he said”.

When asked if he wanted to use the victim’s head for rituals by Punch’s correspondent, Yakubu said;

“I couldn’t have used my kinsman’s head for rituals; our culture forbids it; it was the devil that pushed me into killing him.”

The Public Relations Officer for the Niger State Police Command, Muhammad Abubakar, who disclosed that the police were on the trail of the fleeing Yunusa,  confirmed the incident on Sunday, adding that detectives had recovered Sunday’s body and his motorcycle. According to  him, the case would be charged to court after investigation.

  1. He must be punish for that ,when devil told you to do that why didn’t you give yourself some brain

  2. Absolutely barbaric! Shows how far a person can go when angry,its better to just walk away from a situation offending you than to give in to the emotions arising…, rest in peace to the deceased.

  3. We live in a dangerous world this days, in my own view, I think the man should also be beheaded, cos anybody who kill by sword must also be slaughtered by sword

  4. Rest in peace..this is too bad.the world is going to an end and dis is high level of wickedness.. because he didn’t surrender aba.

  5. Hmmm. When you beheaded him, you didn’t know that you are from the same place until now. Which devil push you to do that? Please stop blaming the devil and start blaming yourself, for your selfish intrest leads you to that. And you must face the punishment that deserves you.

  6. Very wicked, now you know he is your kinsman and you wondering what you will tell your people. Go and face the law

  7. Your very heartless you dont have a heart at all, how do you expect him to willingly surrender the motorcycle that he is using to earn a living? Do you even know if that motorcycle is still on hire purchase? Haaaa God will judge you if you didn’t repent, and I know that you must have been doing it is just that Sundays blood has cried to heaven for your arrest.

  8. how do people get comfortable taking another persons life intentionally not to talk of mutilating them??? What can one do to serve as a deterrent to others in this kind of business of car and bike jacking???

  9. Actually the. Government need to look into this issue and bring up a sex education..
    To help our young ones know the risk of rape.

  10. I can’t imagine how a flesh and blood man can do this to his fellow man. Because of a bike, you kill. May God judge you.

  11. Why would one place a demand on what does not belong to him.? Hijacking and killings are now the order for survival, rather than getting skilled. Now, what’s his gain? Vanity. Justice should take its course

  12. How hardened people can be to kill a fellow being without a second thought. Get legal skill, there is peace in it than killing a fellow because you want to steal from them. Justice should be meted as signed.

  13. Wickedness is an understatement! Evil everywhere…you will explain to your kinsman…satan incarnate…he should wrath in hell.

  14. what a wicked world imagine because he refused to surrender his on property wicked people they must be punished
