A 24 year old was killed by her addict boyfriend, Mohammed, the boyfriend who murdered her has been arrested.
Mohammed narrated how he killed his girlfriend.
“My name is Muhammed Isa Adamu from Potiskum. I started dating Hauwa in 2014. She was obedient to me. She never offended me. I have been abusing drugs for almost five years. I even went to Azure General Hospital to seek medical advice in order to get rid of my addiction. I tried as much as possible to convince my family to meet Hauwa’s over our marital arrangement but my effort became unsuccessful.
Eventually, another guy started dating her. That was the beginning of our problem. She told me that if my family could not meet hers, I should allow the other guy to do so. Apart from that, there was no problem between the two of us. One day I didn’t know what happened to me, I took my drugs and decided to end the lives of both of us. I killed her alone with a knife.
I equally wanted to kill myself but she stopped me from doing that while she was bleeding. She said I should not kill myself. May her soul rest in peace. She further advised me, before she bled to death, that I should repent and seek Allah’s forgiveness. I then promised her not to kill myself and that I will report myself to the police. Which is why when the DPO ‘C’ division called me, I reported at once.” He advised hard drug users to quit the habit as it would only lead to a dead end.
