She narrated: “Ahmed was my fifth son, that Sunday a friend rushed to my house and knocked. When I came out, everyone was shouting Ahmed had been stabbed with a knife.
Some youths carried him and were trying to rush him to a nearby clinic, but could not get a vehicle or tricycle.
“The Keke and taxi drivers refused to help. If they had gotten a vehicle earlier, he (Ahmed) would have survived. Immediately, I called my first son and informed him that Ahmed has been stabbed with a knife.
“My son (Ahmed) staggered to the guardian of the criminal that stabbed him to help him, that he was dying. But, the man pushed my son away, everyone was crying. Once they youths in the area took him to a clinic, he was confirmed dead”, the grieved mother lamented.
Also, Late Ahmed’s elder brother, Kazim Buhari, said the killer had been arrested. He added that the deceased’s corpse had been deposited in the mortuary.
“The next morning, the suspect’s family members came to our house to apologise after they had caught the boy (suspect) Ozuoba. All we want is justice for murdering my brother in cold-blood”, he demanded.
