The State Intelligence Department (SID) attached to Bauchi State Police Command has foiled a robbery plot that could have led to culpable homicide.


The Police also arrested one Mustapha Tahiti, a 35-year-old medical recorder with the Maternity Clinic Kofar Ran, Bauchi metropolis in connection with a robbery attempt.


According to a Police crime bulletin by the PPRO, SP Ahmed Wakili, the suspect was arrested on Wednesday, March 6, following credible intelligence available at the disposal of the Department.



The police arrested the suspect while he was making plans to kill his male cousin and his wife.


On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the alleged crime and stated that he filled a syringe with an insecticide chemical he bought which would have been forcefully administered to the victims.



He also said that he would have carted away their valuables after killing the couple.


The syringe filled with insecticide was recovered as an exhibit.


Police investigation uncovered that the suspect had grudges with the victim for marrying his late elder brother’s wife, whom he loved dearly and wanted to marry.



During interrogation, the suspect confessed that he warned the victim several times not to marry the widow but he refused.


The Commissioner of Police, Auwal Mohammed, directed that the suspect be charged to court upon completion of the discreet investigation.



He assured the good people of Bauchi State of his commitment and efforts towards curtailing crime and criminality through a distinct array of measures, including the deployment of more intelligence tentacles in the state.
