Men of the Adamawa State Police command have arrested Ibrahim Muhammadu, for allegedly masterminding the killing of a newly married woman because she dumped him to marry another man.

According to reports, Muhammadu, who is married with four children, fell in love with the deceased and spent about N150,000 on her after she agreed to marry him. The deceased, allegedly after collecting the money, declined the proposal and got married to another suitor.

Following her marriage to someone else, the suspect then paid someone to set the woman and her husband ablaze on September 6, barely two weeks after their wedding. It was gathered on Saturday, September 10, that the woman died due to severe burns while her husband was receiving treatment in the hospital.

Muhammadu hired the killer, Ibrahim Savanna, paid him N5,000 and gave him four measures of rice to get the couple killed.
