Man Murders His Friend Over Ownership Of Girlfriend In Bauchi

Too many sad news going on in the world today and when the total number of women in the world are more than the men, one would think no man should ever fight over a woman for any reason as there are way too many fishes in the sea.

That’s not the case in Dass local government area of Bauchi where a 21-year-old woman has died over a fight with his friend over the ownership of a lady.

It was reported that the deceased named Zeloti John was reportedly stabbed by his very good friend, Ishaku over who was the ‘real’ boyfriend of the said girl.

Eyewitnesses revealed the incident occurred last Friday at a Kanwara drinking joint in Dass local government area after a fight ensued between the two friends as both men drank alcohol and were chilling.

A relative to the late Zeloti has vowed that he will stop at nothing to seek justice for his late kin.

“We are deeply saddened by the death of our relative. Zeloti didn’t deserve to die. Before this tragedy occurred, Zeloti was making everyone around the neighborhood very happy. We didn’t know he would die the same day. I hope he gets justice.

“As we know it, the fight was over a girl who we are yet to identify. They started quarreling, then it degenerated to fighting and now Zeloti is dead,” he said.

It was also learned that late Zeloti was buried yesterday by mourning friends and family.

Subsequently, the Bauchi Police Command has confirmed the incident through the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ahmed Wakili who said that the case of culpable homicide was reported from the Dass Police Division and has been transferred to the appropriate unit for further investigations.

The PPRO added that the late Zeloti John was stabbed on the neck with a sharp object and was rushed to the Dass General Hospital where he was confirmed dead.

He said that the Police in Dass have arrested one suspect in relation with the case while further investigation was ongoing to know the remote and immediate cause of the incident.

May the soul of the deceased rest in perfect peace.
