Domestic Worker Kills Medical Doctor In Kogi Months After Employment

Operation Puff Adder operatives attached to the Kogi State Police Command have arrested one Abdul Abu, for killing his boss and stealing his N1.6m.

Abu was employed as a domestic worker by a medical doctor, Yahaya Jibrin, in Ankpa on March 27, 2019.

27-year-old Abu and his alleged accomplices, Abduwahab Jibrin, 40; Suleiman Idris, 25; and Christopher Attah, 40, were on Tuesday paraded alongside 32 other suspects arrested for various crimes ranging from kidnapping to armed robbery, cultism and cattle rustling.

The state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Busari, who paraded the suspects at the command headquarters in Lokoja, said Abu was employed by the doctor as a domestic worker.

According to him, the doctor was a member of a local thrift society and Abu was aware that it was his turn to collect N1.6m contribution from the society.

“The doctor and Abu went to collect the money and brought it home. Later, Abu asked for permission to go and bathe, but he instead contacted his gang members, who stormed the doctor’s residence, killed him and stole the money, which they shared N400,000 each,” Busari stated.

Abu, however, denied any involvement in Jibrin’s death, adding that the doctor was too nice to him and he could not have had a hand in his death.

“Doctor was a very good person; he never owed me; he even helped train my children in school. How could I have contemplated let alone organised his death?” the suspect querried.

Asked why he confessed to the villagers that he and his gang were responsible for killing Jibrin, Abu said he was hypnotised after taking a strange drink given to him.

The CP, however, said investigation was ongoing after which the suspects would be charged.

    Some are satanic in nature. The same man helped to pay your children school fees yet you got the mind to kill him for only N400,000.00. Your children will become fatherless and your wife a widow. Please the authority should not let this man die peacefully to teach others that life is precious. The man took you too close to discuss his financial stand of such amount, meaning he had not hidden anything from you in such a short period of time with him.
