A former member of the Boko Haram terrorist, Musa Dauda, has been arrested for allegedly killing and secretly burying his ex-wife, Hafsat Musa.
During a press briefing on Friday in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, the State Police Spokesman, ASP Sani Kamilu, said the incident happened on Tuesday, September 12, 2023.
The police spokesman said Dauda had invited 45-year-old Hafsat to meet with him on her farm at Muhammed Goni stadium before he killed and secretly buried her.
Kamilu said the decomposing body of Hafsat was discovered on the farm by her relatives, and the Police were informed. He added that the woman went missing thereafter, leading to a frantic search by members of his family and a report to the police.
“The case was not reported to the police until a few days later when the decomposing body of Hafsat was discovered on the farm by her relatives,’’ he added.
Kamilu stated that the police swung into action immediately, visited the scene and evacuated Hafsat’s corpse to Umaru Shehu Ultramodern Hospital, Maiduguri, for autopsy.
The police spokesman stated also that Dauda was arrested on Thursday, September 21, and that he confessed to the commission of the crime.
He added that Dauda said he saw Hafsat with another person on the farm, and he clubbed her with a hoe on the head before she slumped and died.
The police spokesman said Dauda later buried Hafsat on the farm and fled, stressing that the suspect would be arraigned at the conclusion of the investigation.
