Adamawa Lady Drugged, Beheaded

Tragedy struck in Yola, the Adamawa State capital as a young lady was beheaded in a hotel room.

Reacting, the Adamawa State Police Command revealed that it arrested some suspects in connection with the crime, including three employees of the hotel, identified as Jacob, and Yifarta, who are receptionists, and Isah, a security guard, who were on duty at the time of the incident at the hotel.

Also recovered from the crime scene were a mobile phone belonging to the deceased and the drug used to sedate her.

It was gathered that the main suspect had on January 18, 2024, at around 9:30 pm, taken his victim to a hotel where he was lodged as a guest, beheaded her, and went away with her decapitated head.

Confirming the arrest to journalists on Friday, the spokesman of the command, Suleiman Nguroje, said, “The command has so far apprehended three staff (members) of the hotel and recovered drug and handset of the lady. The drug and handset were recovered at the scene of the crime.”

He also assured the public of the determination of the Commissioner of Police, Afolabi Babatola, to arrest the perpetrator of the heinous crime.

However, two persons, believed to be behind the gruesome murder, whose identity had yet to be made known by the police, had been nabbed.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, said it has treated 2,573 criminal and civil cases in Katsina State, from January 2023 to December.

The NSCDC State Commandant, Jamilu Indabawa, made this disclosure in an interview with newsmen on Friday in Katsina.

He said the command has also treated about 1,556 criminal cases, and 1,047 civil cases, and resolved 215 disputes.

Indabawa further said that the suspected criminals were arrested following reports by communities while some were arrested at the scene of the crime.

“Some of the arrested suspects have been convicted with others still standing trial in courts,” he said.

He, however, revealed that the command had recovered over N12.5 million vandalised property and smuggled goods.

Indabawa also listed the achievements of the command to include foiling the attempt to kidnap students of Federal University Dutsinma (FUDMA), dismantling of illegal and quack private security operators as well as rapid response to disaster.

“Other remarkable success stories achieved by the Command are the maintenance of 24/7 surveillance of infrastructures, sites and projects of governments, peace and conflict resolution,” he said.
