Police Officer Stabs Two Civilians To Death In Bauchi

A Nigerian Police officer is suspected of stabbing to death two citizens in the Yelwa neighborhood of Bauchi city, Bauchi State, resulting in widespread unrest in the region.

It has been verified in reports acquired by Naija News on Friday that the cop, who has not yet been identified, stabbed three persons in the vicinity, two of whom died on the spot.

According to the Daily Post, a group of youths from the region attacked the street and blocked the route leading from the Elim Church intersection to the Yelwa Divisional Headquarters in protest of the occurrence.

Officials on duty were observed firing into the air to disperse the demonstrators as an enraged crowd pelted stones at police officers inside Yelwa Police Station, according to reports.

On the road, the youngsters also set fire to the tyres of passing vehicles.

The exact source of the outcry, however, is still unclear at the time of this report’s publication.

While this is happening, a farmer known as Mufutau Adekola has been detained in the Oke-Kura Correctional Centre by a Magistrates’ Court in Ilorin for allegedly murdering his mother and brother and injuring another.

The defendant was charged with culpable murder in violation of Section 221 of the Penal Code Law, according to the state police command.

It was revealed by the Prosecution Counsel, Insp. Folorunsho Zacheaus, that on March 9, Adekola assaulted his mother Rafatu and his younger brother Mukaila while they were sleeping at Oke-Ode in the state’s Ifelodun Local Government Area, according to the state’s Prosecution Counsel.

According to his judgement, Magistrate Ibrahim Dasuki ordered Adekola to be remanded in custody till the completion of the inquiry.

Dasuki has scheduled a hearing on April 25 to discuss the subject further.
