The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) has arrested one Isa Idrisa, a Nigerien, who allegedly stabbed a man to death in Hadejia, Jigawa State.
The Comptroller of NIS in the state, Alhaji Garba Abdul, disclosed this to newsmen while parading the suspect in Dutse on Tuesday.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, Garba said the suspect stabbed one Suleiman Adamu of Kofar Gidan Talba in the Hadejia metropolis to death in 2008 and escaped to his country, Niger.
The suspect who was arrested close to Maigatari and Gumel, a border area between Nigeria and Niger Republic ran out of luck when officers and men of the NIS on patrol apprehended him at the border.
Garba said charms and different concoctions were found on the suspect.
However, upon interrogation, the suspect said; “I had a misunderstanding with the deceased and we fought at a political rally in 2008 during former Gov. Ibrahim Turaki’s regime.
“I committed the offence out of anger, I am therefore appealing for leniency because I am not mentally alright,’’ the suspect said.
