A murder suspect was reported to have told the police his victim was “destined to die” the way she did.
According to Daily Trust report, the suspect, Mohammed Sabitu, 25, killed a Fulani woman, who he alleged destroyed his farms. He, however. denied the accusation of deliberate murder but claimed he acted in self-defence. Sabitu told the police the woman pounced on him, which made him hit her with a hoe. The incident happened on Sabitu’s farm in Bula, in Taura Local Government Area of Jigawa state.
“The woman was destined to die in such a circumstance. I did not hit her with the intension to kill her. It was the work of the devil,” Sabitu allegedly said.
