A 500-level student of Veterinary Medicine at the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Kaduna State, Abdullahi Ibrahim, has been arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Bauchi State for allegedly killing a 17-year-old.
The suspect was said to have lured the teenage secondary student with his naked picture and enticed him to meet him for homosexual activity.
The NSCDC Commandant, Bauchi State, Ilelaboye Oyejide, told journalists on Sunday while parading the suspect at the command’s headquarters that the incident happened in Misau town, Misau Local Government Area of the state.
Oyejide said the command received information of a case of culpable homicide that a 17-year-old secondary student, Umar Usman, a resident of Misau, was found wrapped in a cloth and dumped at the Misau bypass.
He explained, “On October 20, 2023, the lifeless body of Umar Usman was found wrapped in a white cloth and dumped in the Misau bypass.
“He was quickly taken to General Hospital Misau where he was certified dead by a medical doctor. His corpse was handed over to the family for burial.
“After thorough investigations by the operatives, a suspect, Abdullahi Ibrahim, a 500-level student of Veterinary Medicine ABU Zaria, was arrested.
“We realised that there was a chat between the suspect, Ibrahim and the deceased, Usman. In the communication, we saw where the suspect enticed the deceased with homosexual love and he showed him his naked picture.
“When Usman went to meet him somehow, he (deceased) was stabbed in the stomach and wrapped in white cloth and dumped where he was found.”
He said during the investigation, the suspect confessed to the crime.
