Gombe state police command have arrested a 26-year-old man, Garba Abubakar, for allegedly strangling his mother, Salamatu Abubakar aged 45 because she usually advised him to stop taking hard drugs.
The state’s Commissioner of Police, Ishola Babaita, while parading the suspect before newsmen said;
“The suspect strangled his mother because she usually advised him to stop taking hard drugs. The victim was rushed to General Hospital Kumo where she was confirmed dead by a medical doctor.
I am advising parents to pay more attention to the care of their children and make sure they are not into hard drug. Sadly this woman was murdered by her own son; that is the effect of drugs” he said.
Similarly Adamu Lawal, 53, was paraded for allegedly defiling his neighbour’s 10-year- old daughter, who usually took animal feed to him.
“This suspect took advantage of that and forcefully had carnal knowledge of the little girl,” Babaita said, adding that investigation was still on.
