Bose Muhammed was brutally stabbed to death by a neighbour
According to information gathered by the police, the incident happened in Kogi State. It was gathered that Hussain Zubairu allegedly stabbed his pregnant neighbour, Bose Muhammed, to death with a pair of scissors.
Zubairu and the pregnant woman lived in the Idogido community of Okene Local Government Area of Kogi state.
She was rushed to a hospital in the area but died on arrival.
According to Punch, the incident happened last Monday when a friend of the deceased visited her. Muhammed and the friend were said to be talking about a lost mobile phone when the suspect interfered.
It was gathered that she cautioned Zubairu not to meddle in their discussion and afterwards, an altercation ensued between both. The suspect was said to have become enraged and descended on the woman with the scissors.
A police source claimed that suspect was described as violent by some residents of the area. He added that some neighbours claimed he was on drugs.
The source said, “Many residents within that area said he was a drug addict but that has not been confirmed. I learnt the woman (Muhammed) had always been trying to avoid him because he was troublesome.
“On that day, the victim and her friend were chatting and he interrupted.
“She told him to mind his business and that infuriated him. He removed a pair of scissors he hid in his trousers, stabbed her in the stomach and fled.
“The woman lost a lot of blood. She was pronounced dead on getting to the hospital. She was pregnant, but was not living with her husband.”
The suspect has been arrested by the police while the deceased was buried according to Islamic rites.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Kogi State Police Command, ASP Willy Aya, confirmed the incident.
