Dismissed staff kills man employed to take his place in Adamawa

A disgruntled man, Iliyasu Suleiman, has k*lled the man who was employed to take his place after he was sacked from his job over alleged theft.

The 40-year-old suspect, from Ngurore ward in Adamawa State, was employed by a service provider’s company as a security guard in 2020, and was sacked in July 2021 after been accused of stealing company’s properties.

Police spokesperson, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, who confirmed his arrest, said the suspect confessed to b*ating the new security guard to d*ath with a stick.

He confessed that he stole the company’s iron rods and sold them to a scavenger at N5000, following which the company reported him to the police who investigated the matter and recovered the iron rods.

He said although the management of the company thre*tened to sack him, he was allowed to stay on after he pleaded, and he worked in the company for one year.

He added however that sometime later, some other people were stealing things from the company and the management, insisting that he must be responsible, finally disengaged him in July 2021.

The company employed another man to serve as security guard, and not long after, he (Iliyasu), armed with a stick, went to the company in the night and hit the new security guard as he slept. He was later trailed by the police who arrested him over the act.
