The Bauchi State Police Command has arrested a 29-year old man, Monday Ajasco, for allegedly stabbing a man to death for refusing to buy him beer.
Spokesperson of the command, SP Ahmed Mohammad Wakil, who disclosed this in a statement on Monday, November 28, 2022, said that the incident happened at a beer parlour at Bagel village in Dass Local Government Area of the state.
According to the PPRO, the suspect stabbed the deceased, Abdulrazak Ibrahim, with a sharp animal horn.
“The command arrested one Monday Ajasco ‘m’ aged 29yrs of Kafin Tafawa Bauchi on the 17th of November, 2022, following information available at the Command’s disposal about his active involvement in a homicide case,” the statement read.
“A discreet investigation conducted by the detectives attached to the command revealed that on the 16th November 2022 at about 2300hrs, the suspect (Monday) went to a beer parlor at Bagel village of Dass LGA where he met Abdulrazak Ibrahim ‘m’ aged 30yrs who is now deceased, and others drinking beer.
“He (the suspect) asked the said Abdulrazak (deceased) to buy him a beer to drink. In response, the deceased refused to do so.
“This development sparked a little altercation between them which displeases the suspect. After a while, they decided to leave the beer parlor and go to their homes while the victim left before them.
“The deceased’s friend heard screaming from his friend from afar. On reaching the scene, he met his friend lying in a pool of his blood while the suspect was standing near the victim holding a sharp animal horn in his hand. He also threatened to stab the victim’s friend when he asked the suspect why he did so.
