The command’s spokesperson, SP Isah Gambo, in a statement on Thursday, August 25, said: “He went into the kitchen, grabbed a pestle, hit her severally with it on her head…as a result of which she sustained head injuries and was confirmed dead by a medical doctor.

In a fit of rage, the suspect also repeatedly struck his father with the aforementioned pestle on his leg. His father sustained several fractures. The suspect has been arrested and has also admitted to committing the crime.

Recall that last year, the command in Katsina apprehended members of two known cult groups who were threatening Federal University Dutsin Ma. The two cults known as Black Axe and Aiye Cult got into a public argument that turned into a fight over a girl. The management of the school, therefore, expelled the student after carrying out thorough investigation.
