 In Adamawa, a teenager stabbed his 21-year-old friend to death over phone

A teenager has been arrested in Adamawa for allegedly stabbing his 21-year-old friend to death.

He was arrested by the Adamawa State Police Command for killing his friend during an altercation with an Infinix mobile phone at the state’s northern local government office in Mubi.

The suspect, 18-year-old Abdulkarim Adamu from Gombe State, was arrested on Tuesday, April 14, after killing Ayuba Hassan, who is accused of stealing a N55,000 mobile phone.

Speaking to reporters at the police headquarters in Yola, Abdulkarim said the deceased had called him and two of his friends, where they had all met and agreed to shoot the Jerricans, who were fueling at a certain gas station in the city. ‘I went to sleep.

According to the suspect, they went to bed at home after an unsuccessful attempt to kidnap the petrol Jerrykans. He woke up at night but realized he didn’t have a cell phone.

Two friends told him that he only visited the house when Ayuba was asleep. When he met Ayuba the next day, he didn’t pick up the phone.

A heated argument broke out and the duo, accompanied by two friends, agreed to go to the river and fight.

As Abdulkarim was walking along the river, Ayuba claimed that he threw a stone at him and took out a knife and stabbed him twice in the arm and chest.

The suspect fled the scene, leaving the victim in a pool of blood. He was later arrested by a vigilant group and handed over to police.

DSP Sulayima Nguroje, a spokeswoman for the Police Command, who admitted the incident on Saturday, said the suspect would be sent to court as soon as the investigation was completed.
