Man allegedly stabs brother to death in Bauchi



The Bauchi State Police Command has arrested one Isyaku Babale (30) for allegedly stabbing his biological elder brother at the Anguwan Dawaki area of Bauchi metropolis.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ahmed Mohammed Wakil, who disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, said preliminary investigations conducted by the detectives revealed that the suspect used a knife to stab his biological elder brother on March 31 at about 0400hrs after an argument that ensued between them.

Wakil explained that the altercation started when the younger brother (suspect) asked his elder brother (victim) to stop taking cold patch liquid popularly known as ‘Sholi’ in their room because of the unpleasant odour of the liquid. Both of them became furious with each other and began fighting. Shortly after a mediation, the suspect ran and picked a sharp object suspected to be a knife and stabbed the victim in his stomach, Wakil added.

Wakil said further investigations revealed that both the suspect and the victim used to engage in fighting using dangerous weapons against each other.


He noted that the suspect was arrested following a report received by the Divisional Police Officer, Township Police Station, Bauchi, adding that detectives from the division were drafted to the scene immediately and they rushed the victim to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital (ATBUTH) but was certified dead by a medical doctor. 

He said the Commissioner of Police, Auwal Musa Mohammed, has ordered a discreet investigation into the incident to unravel the motive behind the action of the suspect.
