Alfred Julius, a 22-year-old man, has been detained for reportedly stabbing his elder brother to death in Jigawa State’s Dutse Local Government Area.

The incident occurred yesterday in Sabuwar, following a violent altercation between the suspect and his 30-year-old elder brother, Augustine Julius.

According to press reports, Alfred attacked his older brother (Augustine) with a knife, killing him.

ASP Lawan Shiisu Adam, a police public relations officer, verified the event to reporters.

He explained that “on 5/1/2021, at about 2200hrs, police received information that there was a wounded victim taken to Rashid Shekoni Teaching Hospital, Dutse, after a fight.”

He said the police swung into action and rushed to the hospital and discovered that one Augustine Julius was stabbed with a knife by his younger brother after having a disagreement.
