Teenager Arrested For Allegedly Killing 17-Year-Old



A 19-year-old boy, Zakariya Saad, has been arrested by the operatives of Adamawa State Police Command for allegedly killing 17-year-old Muhammed Yahaya.

The command said in a statement on Wednesday that its operatives apprehended Zakariya on Tuesday from his residence in Wuro Hausa, Yola South Local Government Area, on the charge of killing Yahaya.

According to the statement signed by the state police image maker, SP Suleiman Nguroje, the arrest of Zakariya followed a report received from residents of Damdu Ward of the same Yola South LGA that “a young yet-to-be-identified person was seen lying in a pool of blood with stab wound around his neck.”

The statement added that police operatives removed the injured boy to the hospital, where he was certified dead.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Afolabi Babatola directs Deputy Commissioner of Police CID to take over investigation and ensure diligent prosecution,” the statement added.
