Suspect Abdul Gafaru Amadu

The Tamale District Magistrate Court presided over by Anthony Assah has remanded Abdul Gafaru Amadu in prisons custody to reappear on 25th February, 2016.

It would be recalled that Abdul Gafaru Amadu, 30, a scrap dealer, was arrested by the Tamale Police for killing one Mugtaru Nurudeen, 25, in Bulpela, a suburb of Tamale, the Northern Regional capital.

According to investigations conducted by DAILY GUIDE, suspect Abdul Gafaru Amadu went to a popular wee base in the area to buy the stuff when a misunderstanding ensued between him and Nurudeen (the deceased). The two engaged in a physical combat and Amadu picked up a knife and stabbed Nurudeen.

The Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh, who confirmed the incident to DAILY GUIDE, said Abdul Wahab Alhassan reported the incident to the police and they quickly rushed to the scene.

According to him, during the fight the suspect got hold of a knife and threatened to stab the deceased should he come closer to him.
The deceased rushed on him and the suspect made good his threat, stabbing him on the left side of his chest.


ASP Tetteh indicated that the deceased was then rushed to the Tamale Teaching Hospital, but upon arrival he was pronounced dead.

A group of young men in the area, upon hearing that Mugtaru had passed on, went and fished out the suspect from his hideout and beat him severely.

The suspect was subsequently admitted at the Tamale Teaching Hospital but was later discharged.

The Tamale Police then arrested him, charged him with murder and arraigned him before the court.
