The Kano State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Magaji Majiya while confirming the culprit's arrest, said the deceased, Rejoice Isaac, was allegedly murdered by the suspect on August 3 and buried in an uncompleted building at Karkasara Quarters.
The PRO disclosed that, “The suspect confessed to burying Isaac but denied killing her. He had attempted to rape her but as she was trying to run away, she was hit by a wood on the head and that led to her death.
“We invited doctors from the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital to conduct autopsy on the deceased’s body. We are now waiting for the result.”
“The suspect is currently with the police undergoing interrogation to ascertain the cause of the deceased’s death.’’
He said as soon as investigation is completed the suspect would be charged to court.
