The Public Relations Officer of the state Police Command, DSP Magaji Majiya, told sources that the command had already commenced investigation into the incident with a view to arresting perpetrators of the dastardly act.

“After we received the report of the incident around 5:30 a.m.‎ on Sunday, the Crime Investigation Department swung into action.

“As the Police reported to the scene, they found that the late bride was raped before she was stabbed to death in her matrimonial room.

“We have so far launched an investigation into the incident and that will lead us to the arrest of the assailants,” Majiya said.

He reminded members of the public on the need to always be security conscious.
