19-year-old boy has allegedly killed his girlfriend in a bloody purge at Happiness Garden Hotel in Bayan Gari area of Bauchi State

In Bauchi State, Muhammad Ibrahim has allegedly killed his Facebook girlfriend, Emmanuella Ande.

Ibrahim, a 19-year-old resident of Sabon Layi, Kano Road, Bauchi, reportedly committed the crime on Monday, December 18.

In his desperate bid to escape the consequences of his alleged crime, Muhammad Ibrahim reportedly stabbed another individual, Zaharaddeen Adamu, 36, in the left hand. The details surrounding Ibrahim’s attempt to escape and the subsequent act of violence against another victim add further layers of complexity to an already distressing situation.

The Bauchi community, typically known for its close-knit nature, is reeling from the shock of such a gruesome event. Friends, neighbors, and acquaintances of the victim and the accused are struggling to come to terms with the reality of what transpired on that fateful Monday. The incident has sparked conversations about the need for awareness regarding the potential dangers of online relationships and the importance of fostering open communication within communities.

The tragic outcome of the relationship between Emmanuella Ande and Muhammad Ibrahim serves as a cautionary tale about the potential risks associated with online connections. While many people form genuine and meaningful relationships through social media, incidents like these underscore the importance of exercising caution and being mindful of the potential dangers that may lurk behind digital interactions.

He was said to have stabbed Ande in the upper chest at the Happiness Garden Hotel in Bayan Gari.

The spokesperson for the state police command, Ahmed Wakil, confirmed the tragic incident, adding that the suspect has been arrested by the police.

He disclosed that the victim’s cries drew attention, prompting people to forcefully open the door in an attempt to rescue her.

In his bid to escape, Ibrahim also stabbed another victim, Zaharaddeen Adamu, 36, in the left hand.

Wakil, in the statement made available to journalists in Bauchi on Wednesday, said the intervention of police operatives saved the accused from mob action.

The statement disclosed that the accused and the victim had connected on Facebook in 2023, and their relationship led to Ibrahim allegedly stealing ₦400,000 from his father’s account to spend time with Ande in Port Harcourt.

But tragedy struck when Ande reportedly demanded the sum of N5,000, which the suspect owed her, leading to a heated argument and a physical confrontation resulting in her death.

Wakil stated that upon receiving the report, the Operations Restore Peace (ORP) team swiftly rescued the accused and took the body of the deceased to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital (ATBUTH) in Bauchi, where she was certified dead.

“Zaharaddeen was treated and discharged from the police clinic, while Ibrahim, after treatment at the same clinic, is currently under investigation.

“Exhibits recovered from the suspect include a knife. The investigation is ongoing, after which the suspect will be charged in court,” the statement reads.
