Jubrin, who was paraded at the Police Headquarters in Minna on Tuesday, stated that Alhassan had walked past him into a neighbour’s house, on the day he caught the Chief Imam and his wife. And almost at the same time, the wife claimed she was going to use the toilet.He stated that he went searching for her when he did not see her for an hour and then heard her voice in the neighbour’s house.
Jubrin became aggravated when the Chief Imam called him for dialogue over the incident and was not feeling guilty about the incident.
“In the course of the discussion, things became heated, we argued with each other and I forcefully collected the iron rod with Alhaji Alhassan and stabbed him in the neck,” he said.
Jubrin took to his heels but was apprehended at Batati village in Lavun local government area.
The Youths of Enagi town, mobilised themselves to the Police station in an attempt to lynch the suspect, forcing operatives to take him down to the Police Headquarters in Minna.
