A drug addict who stabbed a pregnant
woman » to death in Kogi State, has been

Command after being on the run for a few
days.

Reports have it that the suspect, Hussain

scissors because she told him to amend his
ways.
The sad incident happened in Idogido
community of Okene Local Government Area of
the state.
It was learnt that a close friend of the deceased
had visited her and Muhammed and the friend
were said to be talking about a lost mobile
phone when Zubairu interfered but the deceased
cautioned him not to meddle in their discussion
and rather, should try to become a responsible
man instead of being hooked on drugs and
alcohol.
The reprimand did not sit well with Zubairu who
was said to have vowed to kill the woman »
for daring to insult him and few minutes later,
descended on her with the scissors.
A source in the community describes the
suspect as very violent and was avoided by
residents due to his addiction.
“Many residents within that area know he is a
drug addict and people have been avoiding him.
Bose had always been trying to avoid him because
of his troubles. On that day he killed her, the
victim and her friend were chatting and he
interrupted.
She told him to mind his business and that
infuriated him. He removed a pair of scissors he
hid in his trousers, stabbed her in the stomach
and fled.
The woman lost a lot of blood. She was
pronounced dead on getting to the hospital. She
was pregnant, but was not living with her
husband.”
