According to reports, the deceased, Zanda Abu was shot to death by the suspect following an altercation after the suspect spotted the deceased grazing on his farm with his cows.

Lanre Bankole, the State Commissioner of Police said in a press briefing that one Alhaji Bature Umar reported at Ewekoro Division on March 13 that Abu left Afowowa area with some cows for grazing a day earlier and had yet to return.

Alhaji Bature Umar also told the police that a gunshot was heard from the direction where the deceased took his cattle for grazing.

The search party was launched into the bush to find the deceased but unfortunately, they were unable to find Abu. The suspect was arrested later on after intelligence gathering about his altercation with Abu.

Upon interrogation, the suspect claimed to have shot Abu to death in self-defense after the deceased threatened him with a machete during their scuffle.

He claims that he was told by a young girl that his farm has been invaded by some cows and when he arrived, he saw Abu and his cow grazing on his farm. He asked him to leave but the deceased brought out a cutlass to threaten him.

He was warned not to get closer to Abu or else he might injure him with the cutlass but their altercation escalated to another level which led the suspect to shoot Abu in the head.

Saheed then led the police to where he buried the deceased’s body and the body was exhumed and deposited at the morgue for autopsy.
