The police also recovered the victim’s body parts.
It was gathered that residents had been suspecting Abass’ suspicious activities after he moved into the community about two years ago.
On Sunday, May 15, members of the community were said to have perceived an offensive odour, which they traced to the suspect’s house.
The mutilated remains of Barakat were later found.
A resident, Mr Siyanbola Akinkunmi, told newsmen that the suspect, after he was caught, confessed to killing the hairdresser.
