The CP revealed that the police had commenced an investigation into the incident.

“Five suspects are already in the police net,” he said.

In his address, the deputy government decried the woman’s murder, saying it came at a time when the state was still mourning Hanifa, a five-year-old girl killed by her school proprietor.

“Government will not tolerate these dastardly acts, coming at a time when we are doing all we could to ensure peace in the state,” he said.
