Farmer Kills Okada Rider in Gombe, Sells Motorcycle for N120,000

A 37-year-old farmer, identified as Ephraim Kadiri, on Thursday, was parade by the Gombe State Police Command over the killing of an okada rider in Gombe State.

While parading the suspect at the state command headquarters, the Commissioner of Police, Shehu Maikudi, said the suspect took the motorcycle to where he sold it for N120,000.

Maikudi said the Okada rider was hacked down and the motorcycle stolen, adding that it took the police much effort to rescue the suspect from an angry mob from attacking the divisional police station over the incident.

The state Commissioner of Police stated that, “He (Kadiri) was the one, who almost caused mayhem for us yesterday (Wednesday) in Billiri after killing a commercial motorcyclist and stealing his motorcycle. Disgruntled youths in Billiri thought we were not doing enough and attempted to attack the police station. We had to deploy our men there; the Area Commander had to speak to the youth as well as engage the stakeholders in the town to calm the situation.”

“Policemen were later deployed to Cham, where the suspect was arrested in a hotel, but he had sold the motorcycle at Laraban Lamurde.”
