A 28-year-old man, Adamu Mai Bisco, has killed his parents and two sisters in the Potiskum area of Yobe State. It was gathered that the four victims were murdered in their sleep with a shovel by the suspect. The action of the suspect was said to be under the influence of hard drugs.
Some of the people of the area where the crime took place told PUNCH Metro, however, that the parents of the suspect had threatened to report him to security agents for allegedly being a Boko Haram member.
One of the residents, who pleaded not to be named, said, “I gathered that the parents said they would report him to a security agency as a Boko Haram member. He did not take that threat lightly, and so decided to kill them along with his siblings while they were all asleep.” The Police Public Relations Officer of the Yobe State Police Command, Mr. Toyin Gbadegesin, said the offence was against Section 221 of the Penal Code.
