Nemesis has finally caught up a 42-year-old man identified as Mohammed Sale who allegedly killing his 16-year-old daughter.
It has been confirmed that Sale is presently cooling off in the custody of operatives of the Adamawa State Police Command.
The suspect, a father-of-nine was arrested after his daughter’s corpse was discovered in the bush in Mayo Belwa area of the state.
According to the police, it all began when the suspect was informed by his first wife, Zulei Mohammed, that the deceased was not his biological daughter as she was pregnant for another man when they got married.
It was gathered that since then Mohammed lost his fatherly love and affection for Aisha and subsequently divorced her mother, leaving behind the deceased with his second wife.
On Saturday, October, 9, 2021, Mohammed connived with his friend (now at large) and took the victim into the bush on pretence they were going to buy fish for the family.
The suspect and his friend mercilessly descended on the girl with sticks and beat her to death. Afterwards, they stripped her naked and abandoned her dead body in the bush. While on their way back home, Mohammed was advised by his friend to report to the police that his daughter was missing.
He went and lodged a complaint at Mayo Belwa divisional headquarters that Aisha was missing. Police alongside family members searched nooks and crannies of the community but all effort to find Aisha proved abortive. It was gathered that at some point, the police began to suspect that Mohammed could be responsible for the missing girl.
He was interrogated there and then but failed to convince the police.
He was later brought to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the State Police headquarters for further investigation where he confessed to the crime.
