Police officers investigating the murder of Debora Samuel, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto state, have revealed that one of the prime suspects is a foreigner from the neighbouring Niger Republic.

They said despite the fact his face was well captured in the video, when he claimed he killed the victim and even showed the match box he used to light the fire, she was burnt with, it has been difficult finding him in Sokoto metropolis.

“We started looking for him immediately we saw his video on social media because he is fundamental to our investigation,” a top police source told Peoples Gazette.

“We are now learning that he is not even a Nigerian but only came in illegally from Niger Republic to cause chaos in our country.”

The official said Interpol might be enlisted to help arrest the suspect, even though many officers still hold the believe that the suspect is a Nigerian, and may well be hiding somewhere close.

“Some officers are saying he is a Nigerian and we need additional time to find him. We have no facial recognition database, but we are following all available intelligence on the matter.”
