22-year-old Man allegedly stabs rival to death over teenage Girl

Policemen in Adamawa State have arrested a 22-year-old tailor in the state, Muhammed Bala, for allegedly stabbing a rival to death.

The suspect reportedly killed his rival in the neighbourhood, identified simply as Bakura, during a quarrel over a girlfriend that they were allegedly sharing.

The incident was said to have occured on February 15 at the compound of Mohammed’s girlfriend identified as Maryam Mohammed.

When quizzed, Muhammed reportedly confessed to have stabbed Bakura by the neck over the teenager who he said he had proposed to marry after dating her for three years.


According to the Police, Bakura himself had insisted that the teenage girl was his and had warned Muhammed to keep away from her.

The stage was thus set when they both met at the girl’s place on the fateful February 15 and began the fight when Muhammed allegedly used a knife in his possession to stab Bakura who slumped and died instantly.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Adamawa State, SP Suleiman Nguroje, who confirmed the incident on Tuesday, assured that the suspect will be charged to court for prosecution.
