ASP Sani Kamilu, Police spokesman for Borno State Command, confirmed the development in a statement in Maiduguri on Friday. He said the suspect, Dauda invited the deceased to meet with him on her farm in the stadium premises, on September 12.

“The case was not reported to the police until a few days later when the decomposing body of Hafsat was discovered on the farm by her relatives,’’ Kamilu added.
