A security guard at one of the beer joints in Mammy, Birnin Kebbi, has been arrested by the police for allegedly killing his girlfriend and dumping her corpse in a store for two days before dragging it to a millet farm.
The deceased whose name was given as Hajara and her security guard lover Ali were reportedly engaged in argument that led to a fight in which she was killed. A source at the popular joint known as ‘Iron Body’ where the incident happened, told our correspondent that the deceased was from Zuru area of Kebbi State, saying,
“She used to come regularly to the joint where she was killed to hang around even though she was dating the security guard that killed her. Only God knows what transpired between them that night.” The source added that it took the combined efforts of the police and soldiers at the barracks to discover her corpse where it was dumped in the bush.
When arrested, the security guard was reported to have confessed to the police that he killed his girlfriend in error during a fight between them.
