According to police report, one Hassan Mohammed had gone to the police station to report that the deceased, who was his elder brother, was in the market when the suspect and one Dan-Muzua asked him to come back to their camp.
When interrogated, Garba told the police he has had accumulated bitterness towards the deceased.
“I’m a Fulani man; I hardly forgive somebody that offends me. I will always remember and I’m ready to kill the person at any given time. I am such a person, if you wronged me in January and I see you in December, I will retaliate,” Maru stated
Confirming his arrest, the spokesperson of the state police command, Muhammad Abubakar, said Garba would be arraigned in court soon.
