The press release signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Haruna Muhammed, had it that the deceased was killed with a pomp action gun and subsequently buried in a shallow grave.

After making confessional statements, the suspects took operatives to a thick forest in Ihiala where the decomposing body of the victim was exhumed and recovered to the mortuary for autopsy, after it was certified dead by a medical doctor.
