The police in Bauchi State have arrested a 27-year-old man, Munkaila Ado, over the alleged gruesome m#rder of his boss’ 13-year-old daughter in Pali community, Alkaleri LGA of the state.
It was gathered that the suspect, a houseboy, allegedly impregnated the minor and connived with her mother to take her to Gombe State for an ab@rtion.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Ahmed Wakil, in a statement on Sunday, August 14, said the suspect was arrested on August 10 following a complaint lodged at the Divisional Police Headquarters Alkaleri by the victim’s father, Alhaji Danladi Mohammed.
Danladi reported on August 4 that his biological daughter, one Safiya Alhaji Danladi, 13, is missing but that he strongly suspected his house boy, Munkaila and one Muazu Umaru, 35, to be the principal suspects on the whereabouts of his missing daughter.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed that the missing girl was his girlfriend who was four-month pregnant to the knowledge of her mother but unknown to the father Alhaji Danladi Mohammed.
He further revealed that he conspired with the mother of the missing girl and his accomplice, Muazu Umar, and took the victim to Gombe to procure an ab@rtion.
On reaching Gombe, the victim was led to the house of a woman, Hajiya Amina Abubakar, 50, in Jekada Fari, behind specialist hospital Gombe where the victim was administered with some substances to cause misc@rriage.
Eventually, on their way to mai’ari village along Akko LGA Gombe State, the two aforementioned suspects str@ngul@t€d the victim, and consequently, the victim fell unconscious and gave up the ghost.
In the same vein, they b#rnt the body of the victim beyond recognition and b#ried her in a shallow grave at a nearby bush in Akko LGA Gombe State.”
