A teenager, Abdulkarim Adamu, has been arrested by the police for allegedly stabbing his 21-year-old friend to death during a fight over Infinix mobile phone in Mubi North Local Government Area of Adamawa state.
The 18-year-old suspect from Gombe state, was arrested on Tuesday, April 14, after he killed Ayuba Hassan, who he accused of stealing his N55,000 mobile phone.
Abdulkarim told journalists at the police headquarters in Yola that the deceased called him and two of their friends where they all met and conspired to go to and steal jerrycans containing fuel at a particular filling station in the town.
He said his two friends told him only Ayuba (victim) visited the house while he was asleep. When he confronted Ayuba the next day, he denied taking the phone.
A heated argument ensued and the duo, accompanied by their two friends, agreed to go to the riverside and fight.
Abdulkarim claimed that on their way to the riverside, Ayuba threw a stone at him, prompting him to pull out a knife and stab him twice in the hand and chest.
The suspect fled the scene, leaving the victim in a pool of blood. He was later arrested by a vigilante group and handed over to the police.
