The police in Kano have arrested one Haruna Ya’u, who allegedly killed his friend, Musa Muhammad, during an argument over N500.
The state Public Relations Officer, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed the arrest of the suspect in a telephone interview with our correspondent in Kano on Thursday.
“Yes, the suspect has been apprehended,” Haruna said.
Muhammad, 18, was allegedly stabbed to death with scissors by Ya’u during a dispute at Dantsinke in the Tarauni Local Government of Kano State.
The incident happened when another friend of the deceased, Aminu Torres, 23, allegedly asked Muhammad to buy some hard drugs with N500, but the latter used the money for other purposes.
This led to a dispute and in the process, 22-year-old Ya’u allegedly stabbed the victim in the neck, leading to his death.
