A security man has been arrested by the police in Lagos State for allegedly killing his close friend and cutting up his body parts.
Punch reports that Abubakar committed the sordid crime in the Ibeju-Lekki area of the state, after he and his friend, a herdsman, were contracted to work on a farm in the area.
It was gathered that Abubakar and the victim were on the farm on Saturday, December 3, 2016, when a disagreement ensued between them, leading to a fight.
The fierce fight became bloody when Abubakar hacked the victim to death before proceeding to decapitate the deceased and hiding the body parts inside a sack and dumping it in the bush.
According to a police source, the crime was brought to the fore when a brother of the deceased, reported a case of missing person to the police when the victim did not return home from the farm on the day.
“A police team went to the farm and some persons provided useful information, which indicted the suspect. He was arrested based on the tip-off and he actually confessed to killing his friend,” the source said.
The State Police Public Relations Office (PPRO), SP Dolapo Badmos, has confirmed the incident, adding that the Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, had directed that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Yaba, for investigation and prosecution.
