The Nasarawa State command of the Nigeria Police Force has arrested a 23-year-old man, Ezra Wadata, for allegedly killing his friend, Moses Maidoki, and stealing his motorcycle.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Ramhan Nansel, disclosed this to our correspondent in Lafia on Thursday.

According to the PPRO, the suspect who was living with his deceased friend, Moses, in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, made the decision to kill him due to a recent disagreement that ensued between the both of them.

They later reconciled their differences, however, Ezra went ahead to kill his friend in a bid to teach him a lesson, and to steal his motorcycle.

“The both of them were friends, in fact they were living together. But a fight ensued between them, which they later settled.

“However, after two weeks of settling the matter, Ezra killed Moses and locked his corpse inside the house after stealing his motorcycle.

“After some days, the neighbours in the area were no longer comfortable with the smell coming out of their (Ezra and Moses) house, so they approached the police in Kubwa, Abuja, and that was how they knew that Moses had been killed.

“On noticing that the police were after him, the suspect quickly sold the motorcycle in Abuja and ran to his village called Ninga, in Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, where he was arrested by police officers in the state.”

“The suspect has confessed to the crime, and investigation into the matter has commenced as directed by the Commissioner of Police, Maiyaki Baba,” DSP Nansel added.
