The Nigeria Police Force, Bauchi State Command, has confirmed the arrest of Monday Ajasco, 29, for allegedly stabbing to death a man who refused to buy him a beer.
This was confirmed in a statement issued by the command’s spokesperson, SP Ahmed Mohammad Wakil, on Monday, November 28, 2022, explaining that the incident occurred at a beer parlour in the state’s Dass Local Government Area.
The suspect, according to police, stabbed the deceased, Abdulrazak Ibrahim, with a sharp animal horn.
The statement reads:
“The command arrested one Monday Ajasco ‘m’ aged 29yrs of Kafin Tafawa Bauchi on the 17th of November, 2022, following information available at the Command’s disposal about his active involvement in a homicide case.
“A discreet investigation conducted by the detectives attached to the command revealed that 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 parlor 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.
“Investigation into the incident also revealed that the suspect trailed and attacked the victim on his neck with a sharp object suspected to be an animal horn. As a result, he sustained a serious injury where he was swiftly rushed to the General Hospital Dass but was certified dead by the medical doctor. The case will be charged to court for prosecution on completion of the investigation.”
