A senior brother to the deceased, Jamilu Danladi informed journalists that they prayed together with the deceased on Friday at the Mosque in front of their house and he left the deceased for his house at Inkil on the outskirts of Bauchi town.

"I was in my house when I was called on phone and told that my brother was killed by some boys. I was shocked and devastated because of the way he was slaughtered on the neck," he said.

He said that his brother died some minutes after 9:00 pm Friday night and was buried Saturday.

Jamilu informed that his deceased brother had a misunderstanding with the boys who killed him on Wednesday when they beamed their Torchlight on his face and he asked them to stop which led to hot verbal exchange and one of the boys stabbed an wounded him with a Screwdriver,"he said.

"So the next day (Thursday) my brother told one of his friends called Muhammad who was his friend and lives near our house and he equally reported the same case to the dispute resolution committee for them to warn the boys," he said.
