Police in Gombe State has launched investigation into the gruellsome hacking to death of a 58 year old woman in her residence in Jeka-da-fari quarters of the State capital.

Information reaching our correspondent says Aishatu Abdullahi, a mother of eight (8), was slaughtered like a ram around 09:00 pm Friday (20/10/2023) night by suspected hired assassins who stormed the residence and escaped with the victim's mobile phone after the act.

Police operatives are said to have visited the scene shortly after the incident and rushed the victim to the Federal Teaching Hospital, Gombe, where she was certified dead by a medical doctor.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations Department, Gombe State Command, CP Hayatu Usman, on behalf of the State Commissioner of Police, has ordered the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Criminal Investigation Department, to personally investigate the murder incident.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Gombe State Command, Asp Mahid Muazu Abubakar, in a statement said, on receipt of the information, Police operatives moved to the scene where Mrs. Abdullahi was found in a pool of blood and was immediately rushed to the Gombe State Specialist Hospital, where she was sadly pronounced dead. He added in a phone call to our correspondent that the corpse was then taken to the Federal Teaching Hospital.

While condoling the family of Aishatu Abdullahi, the Police assured the public that it is doing everything possible to apprehend perpetrators of the heinous crime and bring them to justice. 

"We urge anyone with information that could help in our investigation to come forward and give us the information,” Mahid appealed.

The Command also urged residents to remain calm and vigilant and to report any suspicious activity or individuals to the Police, adding, “without the support of the public, we may not get to the root of these problems because some of these criminals are from within the community being terrorized.”

It reminded the general public that the restriction of movement earlier imposed in the State was still in place as anybody who violates the order will face the full wrath of the law. It also encouraged Okada and Keke Napep riders to help the Police with information.
