The police in Lagos have arrested a 28-year-old man, Haruna Abubakar, who allegedly killed and shredded his co-worker in pieces.
Abubakar, a herdsman at a farm in Ibeju-Lekki was arrested Monday after the brother to the deceased, Adamu, reported a case if missing person at the police station.
It was gathered that the deceased, a guard at the farm, had an altercation with the suspect, which later led to a fight.
Abubakar was said to have hauled the deceased down with a dagger before cutting him into pieces and stuffing the parts in a bag.
The suspect was said to have dumped the bag containing the deceased’s shredded parts in the bush, where he led the police to recover it after he was arrested.
She said: “The suspect had an altercation with the 27-year-old victim which resulted to a physical fight. In the process, the suspect hauled down the deceased with a dagger, cut him into pieces, packed him in a sack and dumped him in the bush.
“The brother to the deceased reported the case of a missing person to the police after his brother did not return home at close of work. The clue gathered by the police led to the arrest of the suspect who later confessed to the crime and led operatives to the scene where the disembered body was recovered.
“The Commissioner of Police Fatai Owoseni has directed that the case be transferred to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) Panti for further investigation and prosecution.”
