Must read

MINNA, Niger State – In a chilling revelation, police authorities in Niger State disclosed the arrest of a suspected serial killer, Usman Yahaya Muhammad, hailing from Kinboku-Kudu Village, Mokwa local government area.

The arrest has sent shockwaves throughout the state, especially with the chilling details and confessions that followed.

The grisly arrest came to light during a parade of Muhammad and other suspects in Minna, the state capital.

DSP Wasiu Abiodun, the spokesman of the command, recounted the events on Monday, October 9, 2023, “After mercilessly murdering a motorcycle rider, the suspect, rather than fleeing the scene completely, chose to abscond with the motorcycle. We were onto him swiftly.”

In an unexpected twist, Muhammad openly confessed to the crime, revealing a sequence of events that led to the death of an unsuspecting motorcyclist. “I hailed his motorcycle for a ride to Eppa village. However, en route, I committed the heinous act, taking his life.” Muhammad recalled, “I macheted the Okada rider to death on the neck twice, and he fell. I then took the motorcycle away.”

When probed for his reasons, Muhammad’s chilling response was, “I cannot say why I killed him. Something made me do it.” He further added, surprisingly, “After killing him, I reported myself to our vigilante leader in my area, who then reported the incident to the police, leading to my arrest.”

The weight of his actions seemed to register when Muhammad reflected on his fate, stating, “No, I don’t want to die the way I killed. I want to live.” It was then revealed that he had a wedding planned for the upcoming Friday. But even more alarming, Muhammad claimed to have committed similar crimes eight times prior.

The police were quick to inform the public about their ongoing efforts in maintaining law and order.

They recently arrested 38 suspects, seven of whom have been formally charged and will be facing trial for a range of crimes, including banditry, kidnapping, armed robbery, and culpable homicide, among others.

The arrest has reinvigorated the public’s faith in the command’s commitment to ensuring the state remains a safe haven for its inhabitants.
