One Monday Ajasco, 29, has allegedly killed his friend Abdulrazak Ibrahim over his refusal to buy him a bottle of beer at a beer joint in Bagel, a community in Dass local government area of Bauchi State.
The suspect was reported to have stabbed Mr Abdulrazak in the neck with a horn after his victim declined his request to buy him a bottle of beer which infuriated him.
Bauchi State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Ahmed Muhammed Wakil disclosed this to journalists on Monday in a statement in Bauchi.
“On the 16th November 2022 at about 2300hrs, the suspect (Monday) went to a beer parlour 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 parlour 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,” the statement read in part.
The PPRO said the suspect has since been arrested and will be arraigned before a court to face the full wrath of the law.
