A distraught father, Mr Mukadas Maigari, who lost his son, Abdullahi, a corporal in the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps sometimes in 2014 in controversial circumstances, has fingered the deceased’s girlfriend, simply identified as Blessing, in the death of his late son.
The Senior Maigari made this allegation in an interview where he claimed that Blessing after Abdullahi’s death, stole the deceased’s automatic teller machine’s card, and was withdrawing her late lover’s money running into a million.
“He died in the hands of his girlfriend in the hospital. And this is the same girl that later went away with his ATM card which she was later using to withdraw money from his account”, Maigari told Vanguard.
The bereaved father added that he dragged Blessing to court on allegation of killing his son but was begged to drop the charge saying “I had to arraign her before a magistrate court in Jalingo after her arrest and she was later granted bail.
“I really wanted to continue with the case because the whole family was very annoyed, but following pleas from members of my community and hers, I had to withdraw the case from the magistrate for God to judge because no prosecution can replace the lost soul.”
