The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) at the weekend said it has arrested a 27-year-old man, Musa Inuwa, for allegedly punching a 60-year-old man to death in Maiduguri, Borno State.
The state’s corps Commandant, Mr. Abdullahi Ibrahim, told reporters in Maiduguri that the suspect was arrested at Jidari Polo Bus Stop area in the state capital. His words: “The suspect was apprehended by the youth vigilance team known as Civilian JTF, who brought the accused to NSCDC command.
“The victim, who suffered grievous bodily harm leading to his death, was said to have asked the suspect where he could locate a chemist to buy drugs. Unknown to the victim, the suspect was already intoxicated on illicit substance and told the old man that he was disturbing him. The suspect then punched him. The man fell forward and hit his head on the concrete pavement that rendered him unconscious.
“The victim was quickly rushed to Umaru Shehu Specialist Hospital, but unfortunately passed away as a result of massive brain trauma.”
The case has been transferred to the Borno Police Command for further investigation and prosecution.
