NER: Another Murder Suspect Arrested for Stabbing 45-year-old Farmer to Death With Spear

The Bunkpurugu-Yunyoo District Police Command has arrested suspect, Njuagma Boto, for allegedly stabbing a farmer to death at Nabaal village near Yunyoo in the Northeast Region. The deceased, Dubik Gnala, 45, was found dead this morning in his room at Nabaal village near Yunyoo after an overnight attack which left him with deep and fresh wound on his chest. Preliminary investigations revealed Njuagma Boto has had his food poisoned before and he suspected the deceased to have been behind the act and so took revenge by killing him. The suspect, who was arrested with the help of the community members has since been transferred to the Bunkpurugu District Police Command where he is expected to be arraigned before court upon completion of further investigations.

In a brief shared with the Media, Acting Police PRO for the Northeast Region, ASP Robert Anaabik Anmain, said at about 5:00am today, [Monday, October 11], the police received a report from Assemblyman for Gbankpurugu Electoral Area, Hon. Francis Ntoriseb, who reported the deceased's death. The Bunkpurugu/Yunyoo District Police Commander, Supol Emmanuel Yao then led a team of officers to the scene to find the body of the deceased lying in a pool of blood with an open chest wound and a spear dripping with blood by his side.

The body was conveyed to the Bindi Hospital mortuary where a postmortem was performed by medical officer, Dr. Emmanuel Yormesah who gave the cause of death as "Hemorrhagic shock and hemopneumothorax". The police have since released the body to the bereaved family for burial.
