The prime suspect in the murder of the 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Deborah Samuel Yakubu, is not a Nigerian, top police officials said.
The police said that the man whose face is well captured in the viral video of Deborah’s cruel killing, is strongly suspected to be a foreigner from the neighbouring Niger Republic.
According to the Police, the suspect could not yet be found in the Sokoto metropolis where the inhumane crime was committed despite his face being captured in a viral video.
The suspect was captured boasting about his role in the lynching and burning of the innocent 200-level student.
“We started looking for him immediately we saw his video on social media, because he is fundamental to our investigation.
