The Bauchi State Police Command has arrested a 27-year-old houseboy, Munkaila Ado, from Alkaleri Local Council of the state for allegedly impregnating, aborting and killing his principal’s daughter.

Spokesperson for the state’s command, Ahmed Wakil, in a statement, yesterday, said the incident was reported on August 10 by one Alhaji Danladi Mohammed of Mai’ari, Arewa Village Pali, who lodged a complaint at the Divisional Police Headquarters, Alkaleri that his biological daughter, Safiya Alhaji Danladi, 13, was missing since August 4.

Wakil said in the complainant he strongly suspected his houseboy, Munkaila Ado and one Muazu Umaru, 35, of the same address to be the principal suspects on the whereabouts of his missing daughter.

According to him, the preliminary questioning and the suspect’s confession showed that the missing girl was his girlfriend who was four-month pregnant, and was allegedly known to the victim’s mother, but hidden to the father, Alhaji Mohammed.

“He further revealed that he conspired with the mother of the missing girl and his accomplice, Muazu Umar, to take the victim to Gombe State from Bauchi to abort the pregnancy.

“Thereafter, on reaching Gombe, the victim was led to 50-year-old Hajiya Amina Abubakar, in Jekada Fari, behind Specialist Hospital, Gombe, where the victim was administered with some substances to cause miscarriage.

“Eventually, on their way to Mai’ari Village along Akko Local Council of Gombe State, the two suspects strangulated the victim, consequently, the victim fell unconscious and gave up the ghost.

“They burnt the body beyond recognition and buried her in a shallow grave at a nearby bush in Akko Council, Gombe State,” Wakil stated.

The police spokesperson explained that the Divisional Police Officer in Alkaleri led the evacuation of the victim’s body to General Hospital, Alkaleri, where she was certified dead by a medical doctor, while the suspects were arrested.

ALSO, Wakil said one Nenkat Danladi, 31, of Yelwan Kagadama lodged a complaint in Yelwa Police station that on August 6, at about 11:30a.m., she met one Alhamdu Yusuf ‘m’, 59, of same address on her bed with her 18 month-old baby of same address.

“After about 30 minutes, the nominal complainant discovered that the private part of her daughter was oozing blood. On receipt of the complaint, a team of Detection of Crime Branch (DCB) personnel, led by Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Yelwa, took the victim to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU) Teaching Hospital, Bauchi, for medical examination.”

The suspect was arrested and an investigation has commenced in earnest,” he added.
