A 23-year-old man, Ezra Wadala has been arrested by operatives of the Nasarawa State Police Command in Akwanga Local Government Area, of the state for allegedly killing his friend, Moses Maidoki, and stealing his motorcycle.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Nansel Ramlam disclosed this in Lafia , the state capital.
According o Nansel, the suspect who was living with his deceased friend, Moses, in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja committed the offence owing to the disagreement that ensued between them.
However, after two weeks of settling the matter, Ezra kill^ed Moses and locked his corpse inside the house after stealing his motorcycle.
“After some days, the neighbours in the area were no longer comfortable with the smell coming out of (Ezra and Moses) house, so they approached the police in Kubwa, Abuja, and that was how they knew that Moses had been killed.
“On noticing that the police were after him, the suspect quickly sold the motorcycle in Abuja and ran away to his village called Ninga, in Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa state, were he was arrested by the police officers in the state”, Nansel stated.
He added that the suspect has confessed to the crime and investigation into the matter has commenced as directed by the Commissioner of Police, Maiyaki Baba.
