Man Kills Girlfriend Over Pregnancy Ownership In Katsina
A 27-year-old man, identified as Shaf’u Haruna, has been arrested by the Katsina State Police Command for allegedly killing a young girl identified as Hamsiya Lawal.
According to reports, the suspect killed the Lawwal over a dispute on the ownership of her pregnancy.
A statement released by the state police command spokesperson, Gambo Isah, says Haruna claimed the victim was his girlfriend.
The suspect killed the victim sometime in December 2019 over a dispute on the ownership of her pregnancy.
After committing the offence, Haruna went into hiding and was only caught and arrested last Tuesday.
According to the police spokesman, Haruna tricked the victim to a nearby bush, then allegedly strangled and smashed her brain with a heavy stone, killing her instantly.
The suspect will be charged to court soon.
