A 20-year old guy, Sadique Ahmed, was detained by the Bauchi State Police Control for murdering his friend over a sewing machine.
The man who stabbed his friend and fellow tailor, Babangida Umar, 20, in the throat for using his sewing machine without his consent, allegedly committed the said offence at Zango area within the Bauchi metropolis.
Speaking to a Punch correspondent, the father of the deceased, Umar Mohammed, said he had been at the market square when among his kids broke the sad news to him.
“I was sitting with my friends at the market following the Sahur prayers on Saturday, when the younger brother to the deceased ran to meet me and said I must come home because Sara Suka (political thugs) had murdered Babangida.
“On my way home, I met some people carrying him to the hospital; therefore , we stopped a tricycle and we rushed him to the hospital. However, I believe at that time he had died.
“Honestly, I was not happy at all; I was quite sad when I heard the news. My mind was really troubled but I accept it as fate.
“The boy, who committed this act, is my son’s buddy until a misunderstanding happened between them” he said.
Others arrested in relation to the offense are Mamman Adamu (25) and Adamu Isa (18).
