“He was rushed to the hospital but he died eventually. The leader of the hoodlums that attacked him, Bashiru Ahmed a.k.a Kawu (21) of Okoko was arrested.
“He confessed to have committed the crime along with two of his friends who are now at large.
“The said Bashiru Ahmed, who is the son of a popular traditional ruler in Okoko, is a notorious criminal, who was charged to court on several occasions by the police for sundry offences.
“He returned from prison six months ago and has been on the watch list of the police,” Elkana said.
