The  Katsina State Police Command has paraded a man, Isiya Inusa, who murdered a motorcyclist because he could not afford a N100 transport fare.

Inusa who killed the deceased with a knife gave a confession of his crime at the police headquarters committed the murder along Kankara-Kabuki Road, the Daily Post reports.

There were also reports that the suspect tricked the victim into taking him to Kabuki in a bid to steal his vehicle.

Admitting the offence, he said: “Yes, I slaughtered him with my knife. I asked him to take me to Kabuki village from Kankara. He demanded N100 as fare. I did not tell him I did not have that money on me.

“On the way, I brought out my knife and slaughtered him. The police later arrested me while riding on his (the victim) motorcycle.”

The 43-year-old suspect is expected to face swift judgment as soon as he has been arraigned at the court of law.
