A murder suspect, Umar Umar who was arrested by the Niger State Police Command for killing one, Mustapha Mohammed, has disclosed that he killed his victim for being disrespectful..
The murder suspect who claimed he killed the deceased with a machete because he “lacked respect for elders”, buried him in a shallow grave at a farm in the Mokwa Local Government Area of Niger State.
It was gathered that the incident occurred, when Mohammed and his brother were on their way to the farm.
“I got angry and killed him for disrespecting me and the elders living in the same area with him.
“He lacked respect and this has affected him. It is a pity he has paid the price for being disrespectful to his seniors. I purposely killed him for lacking respect for his elders. He has learnt his lesson the hard way, it’s unfortunate.”
Asked whether he regretted his action, the suspect said, “I have no regrets because that is what Mohammed deserved. He never listened to the advice of elders, he talked to people anyhow” Umar said.
Punch reported that the Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, said that the murder suspect who has already confessed to the crime, will soon be arraigned in court.
