Attempted rape ends in murder!

The police in Kano on Wednesday arrested a 35-year-old barber, Mr. Shamsu Isah, for allegedly killing a 21-year-old woman at the Karkasara quarters in the Kano metropolis.
The Kano State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Magaji Majiya, confirmed the arrest of the suspect in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Kano.
Majiya said the deceased, Miss Rejoice Isaac, was allegedly murdered by the suspect on August 3 and buried in an uncompleted building at Karkasara Quarters.
He said after the arrest of the suspect, Isah led policemen to the area where he buried the deceased after killing her.
He said, “The suspect confessed to burying Isaac but denied killing her. He had attempted to rape her but as she was trying to run away, she was hit by a wood on the head and that led to her death.
“We invited doctors from the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital to conduct autopsy on the deceased’s body. We are now waiting for the result.”
Majiya said the Police Commissioner, Mr Rabi’u Yusuf, had ordered the transfer of the suspect from the Special Anti-kidnapping Unit to the Criminal Investigation Department for appropriate investigation.
He said, “The suspect is currently with the police undergoing interrogation to ascertain the cause of the deceased’s death.’’
He said as soon as investigation was completed the suspect would be charged to court.

On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…
