Jealous Drug Addict who Killed Lover, Arrested

Published

on

30- year old Muhammed Adamu, a drug addict, who killed his 24-year-old girlfriend out of jealousy, on the the 29th of May, has been arrested by the Yobe state police.

The fresh graduate from Federal College of Technical Education, Potiskum, has confessed he killed Hauwa Muhammad because he discovered that she had started dating another man.

Narrating how he committed the crime, the assailant said: “My name is Muhammed Isa Adamu from Potiskum. I started dating Hauwa since 2014. She was obedient to me. She never offended me.

I have been abusing drugs for almost five years. I even went to Azare General Hospital to seek medical advice in order to get rid of my addiction. I tried as much as possible to convince my family to meet Hauwa’s over our marital arrangement but my effort became unsuccessful.

Eventually another guy started dating her. That was the beginning of our problem. She told me that if my family could not meet hers, I should allow the other guy to do so.

Apart from that, there was no problem between the two of us. One day I didn’t know what happened to me, I took my drugs and decided to end the lives of both of us. I killed her alone with a knife.

I equally wanted to kill myself but she stopped me from doing that while she was bleeding. She said I should not kill myself. May her soul rest in peace.

She further advised me, before she bled to death, that I should repent and seek Allah’s forgiveness. I then promised her not to kill myself and that I will report myself to the police.

Which is why when the DPO ‘C’ division called me, I reported at once.” He advised hard drug users to quit the habit as it would only lead to a dead end.

After Meeting NGF Chairman, Akpabio Apologies To state Governors Over N30bn Claim

Published

on

The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has finally apologised to the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) under the leadership of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State over his comment on the N30bn allowance allegedly given to them to cushion the effect of inflation in food prices.

This was coming after the Senate President held a meeting with the NGF Chairman and some of his counterparts in Abuja yesterday.

Akpabio had, at a plenary sitting last Tuesday, said an “unverified report” indicated that state governors received N30bn each from the Federation Account to cushion the effect of inflation and the high cost of food prices.

The statement has generated controversies in the public space, with some commentators asking governors to come clean about the money they did not collect.

However, on Monday, Akpabio in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Eseme Eyiboh, retracted the statement, saying the SP held the governors in high esteem.

The statement reads below:

“During the session, the President of the Senate commented on the payment of an unverified cumulative sum of about N30bn to the sub-national governments by the Federal Government for various interventions to ameliorate the food situation of our citizens at the sub-national governments.

“The unfortunate conjectures to take away the kernel in the material facts of FAAC payment are rather regretted. In considering the well-intended motive of urging state governments to collaborate with the Federal government of President Bola Tinubu to facilitate strategic interventions to mitigate the prevailing economic situation in the country remains the underpinning motivation in the comment.

“The President of the Senate is not oblivious to the fact that state governments are functional partners in all the efforts of the current administration of President Bola Tinubu and are also valuable stakeholders’ in the various legislative engagements of the legislature in creating the nexus between the legislature and the people.”

Eyiboh added that Akpabio has always demonstrated commitment to team building and shall not do less in the circumstance.

He, therefore, urged the sub-national governments not to be distracted by any misunderstanding of the context and true meaning of the statement.

He added, “The President of the Senate recognises and appreciates the current efforts of the governors at ameliorating the adverse effects of the current inclement socio-economic environment and therefore invites more hands on the plow to complement the renewed hope agenda.”
