Two Nigerians Assassinate 85-Year-Old Man, Axe Him To Death After N2000 Payment

Two young men, Thankgod Obadia, 18 and Ganiyawa Danzaria, 22, are in police custody for allegedly collecting N2,000 to kill an 85-year-old man, Sunday Leke, accused of practicing witchcraft in Adamawa State.

The duo was reportedly contracted by one Gahurbiu Man to kill the octogenarian whom she accused of bewitching her son.

Upon receipt of the N2,000 part payment out of the N5,000 contract sum, Obadia and Danzaria stormed the residence of the old man and brutality axed him to death.

The incident happened last Friday at Simba village in the Song Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

“The two-man killer syndicate invaded the old man’s residence around 10:00 pm and smashed his head with an axe,” a local source told SaharaReporters.

The spokesperson for the police in Adamawa State confirmed the incident, saying the “two suspects are currently being interrogated in connection with the murder of Sunday Leke, aged 85 years”.

“The police are on the trail of a lady by the name Gahurbiu Man, believed to have masterminded the murder of the old man,” he added.
