The Adamawa Police Command has confirmed the arrest of three suspects in connection with the beheading of Bilkisu Alhaji Idi, a young woman who was a guest at the Happy Day Quest Inn Hotel in Yola North Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the Adamawa State Police Command, SP Suleiman Yahaya Nguroje in a statement, identified the suspects as Offa Jacob and Yifarta Caleb, both receptionists at the hotel, as well as Habibu Isah, a security guard.
He said the arrests were made following the discovery of the gruesome crime that took place on January 18, 2024.
Nguroje explained that the Adamawa Police Command was treating the case with utmost seriousness and assured the public of thorough investigation.
A former husband (name withheld) of the late Bilkisu Alhaji Idi disclosed to Daily Trust that they had been married for six years but separated two months ago.
He revealed that he was asked to come to the Karewa Division, but upon arrival, he was taken to the Adamawa Police headquarters where he was informed of her death in a hotel room with a lover-ritualist.
He stated that he was asked to see her corpse, but he could not as he had never experienced such a situation before.
The ex-husband, who expressed sadness over the incident, said Bilkisu had called him on the fateful day, asking to speak to her son.
He informed her that their son was with his mother and promised to contact her once he (the son) returned home.
