According to him, “I got the message that Babangida had butchered his father using a sharp cutlass. “When the information got to me, I took a motorcycle and quickly rushed to the scene of the incident, where I saw the deceased lying in a pool of blood. When I removed the cloth covering his face, I saw that it had been cut in places using a sharp cutlass. “We carried a blanket and folded the body into it. When I asked to know the whereabouts of his son, I was told that he had run away. I quickly rushed to the police station where I reported the matter and the police and vigilante group conducted a thorough search for the son. They found him hidden in the bushes near a stream and arrested him”, Jauro said. The ouncilor added that the accused was arrested and handed over to the Police Divisional Headquarters in Gembu for further interrogation.
