Written by on January 27, 2020

Tragedy struck in Gwallameji, a student community in Bauchi, the Bauchi State capital, when a man, identified simply as Solomon, allegedly stabbed one Patience Zakariya to death.

The deceased, who was a National Diploma graduate of the Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi, was allegedly stabbed to death by Solomon, whom her friends described as the deceased’s boyfriend.

According to a source, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of his safety, said the incident happened after an outing at a popular club around the area at midnight on Friday.

He said, “I stay in the same compound with Patience although I was not at home when the incident happened; I only came back the following day to hear about it.

“What I was told was that she went to a club in Gwallameji with her boyfriend and some of her friends, but while they were there, I was told that they had an argument after her boyfriend saw her with another man and they came back home. The boyfriend does not stay here, but comes here very often.

“I learnt that while they were arguing, she broke a bottle on his head, maybe in self-defence, but Solomon took a knife and stabbed her twice and he ran away. So, her friends rushed her to hospital in Yelwa, where she was treated and brought back home.”

Unfortunately, she was rushed back to the clinic and there she died and her remains are still in the custody of the health facility.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Bauchi State Command, Kamal Abubakar, confirmed the incident in a telephone interview on Sunday.

The police spokesman assured members of the public that the command was on the trail of the culprit and would ensure that anybody connected to the crime was prosecuted.”
