Alfred Julius, a 22-year-old man, has been detained for reportedly stabbing his elder brother to death in Jigawa State’s Dutse Local Government Area.

The incident occurred yesterday in Sabuwar, following a violent altercation between the suspect and his 30-year-old elder brother, Augustine Julius.

According to press reports, Alfred attacked his older brother (Augustine) with a knife, killing him.

ASP Lawan Shiisu Adam, a police public relations officer, verified the event to reporters.

He explained that “on 5/1/2021, at about 2200hrs, police received information that there was a wounded victim taken to Rashid Shekoni Teaching Hospital, Dutse, after a fight.”

He said the police swung into action and rushed to the hospital and discovered that one Augustine Julius was stabbed with a knife by his younger brother after having a disagreement.

Shiisu said the victim was confirmed dead by a medical doctor while receiving treatment.

He said the suspect took to his heels after he committed the crime, and that effort was on top gear with the assistance of his relatives to get him arrested and brought to book.
