Kaduna Police Command on Wednesday says it has apprehended a man for killing his best friend to avoid paying back a loan of N385,000.
The incident was confirmed by the Command Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige in Kaduna.
Jalige disclosed that the victim’s father had lodged a complaint to the police in Zaria on June 5.
The dejected father intimated the police about the disappearance of his son, who had left home at about 10am on June 4.
The police spokesman added that the complaint had suspected that his son’s friend might have had a hand in the victim’s sudden disappearance.
“After apprehending the suspect, he disclosed that himself and one person of No.94 Anguwan Magajiya, Zaria City lured the victim to an uncompleted building where they killed him and dumped the body in an abandoned well.
“They decided to commit the dastardly act of ending the victim’s life in a gruesome manner, in order to avoid refunding the sum of N385,000 they owed the deceased.”
Jalige said that the suspects led the Police to the scene where the body was exhumed and taken to Gambo Sawaba General Hospital for examination, and later released to the family for burial according to Islamic rites.
