A 21-year-old man, Usman Danladi, has been arrested by men of the Nasarawa State Police Command for allegedly using a machete to cut off the wrist of one Jibrin Abdullahi, in Auta Balefi community, in the Karu Local Government Area of the state.
Trojan.com.ng gathered that Danladi allegedly perpetrated the crime while fighting with Abdullahi, whom he accused of assaulting his girlfriend, one Aisha.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ramhan Nansel, in a statement on Monday, confirmed the incident.
The statement read, “On September 16, 2022, around 4pm, information was received that one Jibrin Abdullahi, 25, who hails from Kaduna State, but a resident of the Tudun Wada Area, Auta Balefi of Karu LGA, Nasarawa State, was attacked and his wrist, chopped off.
“Upon receipt of the information, police operatives attached to the Goshen City Division led by CSP Eunice Ogbadu, swiftly raced to the scene and rushed the victim to the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, for treatment.
“Consequently, an intensive manhunt for the perpetrator of the dastardly act was instituted. The effort of the investigators paid off on September 17, 2022, when the prime suspect, one Usman Danladi, 21, aka Murderer, was arrested.
“Upon interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime but claimed that the victim earlier assaulted his girlfriend, Aisha, and when he confronted him, a fight ensued and in the process, he attacked the victim with a machete.”
Nansel said the state Commissioner of Police, Adesina Soyemi, directed the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Lafia, for further investigation, after which the suspect would be charged to court for prosecution.
