The arrest of the suspect was confirmed in a statement issued by the Command’s spokesperson, Josephine Adeh.

It was gathered that Uzairu and four other suspects, who are currently on the run, brought a vehicle for repairs. An argument occurred which led to the deceased being stabbed in the neck with a dagger by one of the suspects.
