Kwara police parade man for killing mother, brother’s wife



The Kwara State police command on Wednesday paraded a Fulani man for allegedly killing his 65-year old mother and elder brother’s wife in Patigi, Patigi local government area of the state.

The suspect whose name was given as Abubakar Usman was said to have carried out the dastardly act on the 13th of this month.

The names of the deceased are Khadijat Usman and Ramatu Shagari (35).

Addressing reporters on Wednesday in Ilorin, state capital, the state Commissioner of Police Olusola Amore, added that Adamu also macheted a cow in the Mamba Fulani camp for no reason.

The commissioner equally paraded Yahaya Umar and Abubakar Saletu with human head.

The suspects are said to be from Wobe Fulani camp in Okuta, Baruten local government area of the state.

Mr. Amore said that the duo conspired and lured the deceased (their friend) into the bus, killed him and severed his head.
