The prime suspect in the murder of the 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Deborah Samuel Yakubu, is not a Nigerian, top police officials reportedly told Peoples Gazette.
The man whose face is well captured in the viral video of Deborah’s cruel murder is strongly suspected to be a foreigner from the neighbouring Niger Republic, according to the police.

Despite his face being captured in a viral video, the suspect has yet to be found in the Sokoto metropolis where the inhumane crime was committed, according to the police.
The suspect was caught on camera bragging about his role in the lynching and burning of the 200-level student.
“As soon as we saw his video on social media, we started looking for him because he’s crucial to our investigation.”
“We are now learning that he is not even a Nigerian and only entered our country illegally from the Niger Republic to create chaos,” a top police source told Peoples Gazette.
According to the police source, Interpol may be called in to assist in locating and apprehending the suspect.
Many police officers, according to the source, believe the suspect is a Nigerian who is still within the country’s borders.
“Some officers say he’s a Nigerian, and we’ll need more time to find him,” a source told the newspaper.
“We don’t have a facial recognition database,” the source added, “but we are following all available intelligence on the matter.”
