The Yobe State Police Command on Tuesday arrested one Muhammed Isa Adamu, for killing his fiancee, Hauwa Muhammad.
It was gathered that the deceased who left home to buy a loaf of bread and did not return home was found dead on May 29.
The 30-year-old suspect who was paraded by the Yobe Commissioner of Police(CP), Abdulmaliki Sumonu said, “My name is Muhammed Isa Adamu from Potiskum LG. 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.
“Apart from that, there was no problem between the two of us,” Adamu added.
“One day I didn’t know what happened to me, I took my “Exol” and decided to end the lives of both of us. I killed her alone with a knife,” Adamu said.
“I equally wanted to kill myself. May her soul rest in peace: she stopped me from doing that. While she was bleeding, she said I should not kill myself.
“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.”
Adamu, however, advised hard drug users to quit the habit as it will destroy them.
