Police arrest Civil Defence Corps operative over alleged murder

The police in Osun State have arrested an operative of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) over the death of one Kamaldeen Muritala. A statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by the Force spokesman, ACP Frank Mba, said  Muritala, a 32-year-old Islamic teacher, died of fatal stab wounds allegedly  inflicted on him by the NSCDC operative. The statement said that the deceased  was a teacher  attached to Comprehensive High School, Ejigbo, Osun. It said the incident happened on June 27, adding that preliminary investigation  by detectives revealed that Muritala died at Baptist Hospital, Ejigbo,  from complications of the “  fatal stab wounds inflicted on his neck with a jack-knife.”

It also said the timely intervention of the police helped to rescue the 30-year-old suspect  as well as prevent other property from being burnt. The statement, which warned  citizens  against resort to self help no matter the provocation, said  justice would be served in the case. (NAN)
