A man identified as ThankGod Emmanuel has been apprehended by the Niger State Police Command for allegedly stabbing his colleague, Tita Komla, to death.
A report into the incident revealed that the suspect stabbed Tita with a dagger, stole his N47,000 and dumped his body in drainage.
The suspect was, however, apprehended after the operatives of the Tundun Wada Division conducted a detailed investigation.
Upon interrogation, Emmanuel was said to have confessed to police that he killed his colleague in order to steal N47,000.
“I killed him so that nobody would know that I stole his N47,000. I used a digger to inflict injuries on his head and he died instantly.
“I never suspected that the police would identify me as the one who killed him,” he said.
The spokesperson of the Niger state police command, Muhammad Abubakar, who confirmed the incident stated that he will be arraigned in court after investigation.
Abubakar said: “The suspect confessed to killing his colleague, he would be arraigned in court soon.”
