Share This

A spiritualist and two others have been arrested by the FCT police for the murder of a student of Baze University, Abuja, after defrauding him of N7 million. The student, Awwal Umar, a student union leader, 26, was killed at Kankara in Katsina state on October 3.

The Commissioner of Police in Abuja, Mr Wilson Inalegwu, who announced this on Thursday said, “On October 2, he (deceased) took his wife to his father’s house, saying he was going to Keffi Road (Nasarawa) to buy Sallah ram in the morning.

“In the evening, at about 9.30 pm of same day, he made a phone call that he had bought the ram and was returning home.

“That is the last contact his parents and wife had with him. The man, the deceased, disappeared on October 2 and on October 6, the parents made a report in this command and we got our crack team to investigate the matter. From the call log on his phone, we made arrests. We discovered that one Abdullahi Bello, who was living in the same house with the deceased, had over a period of time collected N7 million from him.”

According to  Mr Wilson Inalegwu, when Bello could not pay back the money, he engaged a spiritualist to divert the attention of Umar from demanding for his money.

The commissioner said when that did not work according to plan, Bello came up with another plot where he gave the money to a spiritualist at Kankara in Katsina State, then lured the deceased to Katsina with a promise to recover the money from the spiritualist on the pretext that the spiritualist had doubled the N7 million.

Inalegwu said that the suspect, the spiritualist and another suspect now at large, beat late Umar to death at a stream at Kankara using sticks, clubs, machetes and other weapons.

He said the corpse was exhumed for examination and reburied, adding that the suspects would soon be charged to court.
