“In an effort to fix her new room, she (late Hansatu) removed a zinc door of her former house to fix on her new apartment.

He said that the suspect was apprehended by Gombi Police Divisional headquarters, following a report received from Malam Jauro Boka, a village head of Lande.

The Commissioner of Police in the State, Mohammed Barde, has directed a discreet investigation into the matter and advised members of the public to avoid taking laws into their hands.
