Lamenting how his daughter was murdered, Malam Mohammed Oloko told Sunday Trust at Ankpa that only God could explain how his daughter met her untimely death in the hands of the perpetrators of the crime.
According to the suspects who are in police custody, the handset was stolen from them by the school girl, and that they had to beat her up in order to retrieve it.
However, Malam Oloko told Sunday Trust that the mobile telephone in question actually belonged to his daughter, explaining how she obtained it thus: “One of her uncles bought the handset for her. She had the receipt for the purchase of the handset. She showed it to be boys, but they would not listen. They beat her up, overpowered her and then killed her. This is unbelieveable!”
Confirming the incident to Sunday Trust at the headquarters of Ankpa Local Government Area, Ankpa, Chief Imam of Angwa-Ede mosque, Malam Jibrin Shaibu, condemned the killers, stressing that it was he (the Imam) who had requested to see the receipt of the handset to confirm its authentic ownership.
Furthermore, he said that it was Sadiat who could prove the ownership of the disputed handset, but this angered the boys who had lost out in the argument.
When contacted, the Divisional Police Officer in Ankpa, Mr John Ogbona, said the incident was reported and the boys had been arrested and transferred to Abuja for further interrogation.
An elder in the community, Alhaji Ogwu Asada, said the new trend of criminality was worrisome, noting that if it were not for God’s intervention, those boys would have set the whole place on fire with petrol which they had taken along with them during the confusion.
