The Borno Police Command confirmed the arrest of two suspects, Adamu Ibrahim and Bukar Wadiya, in connection with the alleged murder of 24-year-old Fatima Alhaji-Bukar.
Fatima is said to be a resident of Dikechiri, Bayan Gidan Dambe area in Maiduguri metropolis.
The incident unfolded on October 18, 2023, when Adamu Alhaji Ibrahim, presenting himself as the victim’s husband, arrived at the Gwange Division seeking urgent police intervention.
Preliminary findings suggested a history of domestic disputes, primarily linked to accusations of marital infidelity.
Upon investigation, the police discovered the victim’s lifeless body in her residence, surrounded by disturbing evidence, including a short pestle, a bag, rope, a blood-stained rug carpet, a knife, and a Honda vehicle.
Notably, there were no signs of forced entry, indicating that the perpetrator likely had access to the house and was later confirmed to be the husband.
The suspects, Adamu Ibrahim and Bukar Wadiya, were promptly apprehended as prime suspects.
The Borno Police Command is diligently conducting an in-depth investigation, aiming to bring justice to the victim and her family in this tragic incident.
