On the evening of the same date, there was a report that the deceased body of a male adult has been discovered abandoned at the outskirts of Eastern Bypass, around Bechi Village in Kumbotso LGA, Kano State. The body was removed from the scene by a team of crime-scene Policemen led by Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Kumbotso Division, SP Mustafa Abubakar, who brought the corpse to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, where a Medical Doctor certified the body dead.

During preliminary investigations, the suspect confessed that he conspired with two others and jointly lured the victim to his house, who until his death were intimate friends. He narrated that he tied him up and hit him with sticks and sharp iron on his head and other parts of his body until he became motionless. Thereafter, he loaded the motionless body inside the boot of the deceased’s Vehicle, threw him off by the roadside along Eastern Bypass, around Bichi Village and left away with the motor vehicle, a Toyota Corolla, 2015 Model including his Mobile Phone.

But having realised that he had no means of returning the money to him, he hired two hefty guys, conspired with them, killed him, and hid the motor vehicle at a garage in Hotoro Quarters, Kano.
