Se­cu­rity guard kills, dumps girl­friend in store

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ismail Ade­bayo, Birnin Kebbi

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.
