The man who stabbed his friend and fellow tailor, Babangida Umar, 20, in the neck for using his sewing machine without his permission, reportedly committed the said offence at Zango area within the Bauchi metropolis.

Speaking to a Punch correspondent, the father of the deceased, Umar Mohammed, said he was at the market square when one of his children broke the sad news to him.

“I was sitting with my friends at the market after the Sahur prayers on Saturday, when the younger brother to the deceased ran to meet me and told me that I should come home because Sara Suka (political thugs) had killed Babangida.

“On my way home, I met some people carrying him to the hospital; so, we stopped a tricycle and we rushed him to the hospital. But I believe at that time he had died.

“Honestly, I was not happy at all; I was very sad when I heard the news. My mind was really troubled but I accept it as destiny.

“The boy, who committed this act, is my son’s friend until a misunderstanding happened between them” he said.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kamal Abubabakar, who confirmed the incident which occurred on January 5, 2019, said three suspects, including the prime suspect, had been arrested in connection with the incident. Others arrested in connection with the crime are Mamman Adamu (25) and Adamu Isa (18).
