The Gwagwalada Divisional Police Headquarters on the 14th of March, 2022 received information from a well-meaning resident of Giri village about the attack on one Sani Abdullahi, a male of Hausa extraction, who was allegedly hacked severely on his farm on the 13th of March, 2022.
According to a press release signed by the FCT Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Josephine Adeh ANIPR, she said that the victim was attacked alongside five others, who sustained various degrees of injuries by four men of the same address and of Bwari extraction. The victim who was earlier rushed to the Hospital was later confirmed dead by the Doctor on duty on the same day, while three of the other five victims are currently in the hospital responding to treatments.
The statement read, “Consequently, the Command’s intelligence and investigative assets attached to the Division were detailed for action, leading to the arrest of the following suspects; Timothy Emmanuel, Joshua Sunday, Usman Mohammed and Danlami Steven, all male of 24, 21, 20, and 24 years old respectively.
“All effort to conduct an autopsy on the deceased proved abortive as the Relatives Vehemently insisted on retrieving and burying him according to Islamic rites.
