22-year-old boy stabbed to death in Kaduna over girlfriend

A 19-year-old Umar Abdullahi, residing at Fulani road in Ungwan Rimi,
Kaduna State has admitted murdering 22 years old Aliyu Yusuf at the gate of the Kaduna Capital school along Rabah Road in Kaduna.

Abdullahi, who is the prime suspect in the case, is said to have fled
to Daura in ‎Katsina State but was arrested and brought back to Kaduna
by security operatives.

Confessing to the murder at the Kaduna state Police Command on
Tuesday, Umar said he stabbed Aliyu in defence of his friend who would
have been stabbed by the deceased.

According to Dailypost, Umar said

 “We went to Capital
School on that day because a student of the school was bullying a friend
of ours, Yunusa Umar who is a student of the school because they are
sharing a girlfriend.
“‎Unfortunately, he and his friends, came
out in a large number carrying dangerous weapons. The person we went to
see came towards my friend Yunusa with a knife from behind and tried to
stab him. He was able to dodge and it was in the process that I stabbed
him with the knife on his shoulder‎.”

Yunusa Umar while telling
his own side of the story said:

“I was in my girlfriend’s (Lantana)
house in Badarawa when ‎she came running with somebody’s hand set
(mobile phone)So, I left the house only to be accosted by late Aliyu and
his friend
for spreading rumors of Lantana stealing a hand set. I was given the
beating of my life and when I told my friends, they vowed revenge.“I
never wanted anybody to die. They were just supposed to beat them up so
that they will stop bullying me,”
