Man kills 1, injures 3 in Jigawa – Police

25 September 2016, 21:43

Dutse - An unidentified man on Saturday had stabbed one person to death and injured three others in Jahun Local Government Area of Jigawa, the police said on Sunday.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Jinjiri Abdu, who confirmed the incidents in Dutse, said the attacks occurred about 1.30 a.m. in Taraya Village in the area.

He said the police received a report about 2 a.m. that an unknown man entered a house and stabbed 21-year-old Adamu Busi, with a knife.

“Upon receiving the report, our men immediately moved to the scene but unfortunately the suspect had disappeared,’’ he said.

Abdu said while the police were taking  the victim to the hospital, they received another report that the suspect had entered another house and stabbed 18-year-old, Saleh Usman in the stomach.

He said another report came that the suspect had moved to another house and stabbed 15-year-old Auwalu Alhaji at the shoulder.

Abdu said the policemen divided themselves into two groups, one group trying to take the victims to hospital, and the other looking for the suspect.

He said that the police got another report that the attacker entered another house and stabbed 20-year-old Yusif Sulaiman in his ribs.

“So the first victim died before we could take him to hospital while the rest were taken to the General Hospital where they are responding to treatment,’’ Abdu said.

He said the man stabbed in the stomach had serious injuries with his intestines exposed and added that ‘’the rest are receiving treatment in the hospital.’’

The police spokesman said the corpse of the dead man had been handed over to the family for burial.

According to him, the police have launched a manhunt to arrest the  suspect.

The police in Jigawa on Sept. 13 arrested a 30-year- old man for allegedly killing a 70-year-old woman and her 50-year-old son in Jahun Local Government Area.
