The Niger state police command has arrested sixteen-year-old Idrisu Muhammadu, pictured above, for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Fatima Isah whom he accused of dating his older brother as well.
According to reports, Muhammadu who is from Evutagi village in Katcha Local Government Area of Niger state, was in a relationship with Fatima when he found out she was also seeing someone else. He threatened he would kill her if she leaves him for another man.
When he discovered that her father, Isah Evutagi, was about to give her to his older brother as a wife, he killed her. He later told police he had warned his brother to stop seeing his girlfriend but he refused.
“I told my brother to leave Fatimah for me because I planned to marry her, but he would not listen to me and he kept on seeing her until one day, I lost my temper and killed her. Look at what it has resulted to; I am now a murderer. I am going to spend all my life in jail from the age of 16; it is unfortunate.” he told newsmen
Confirming the incident, the Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, Mohammad Abubakar, said the suspect would be arraigned in court after investigation.
