A woman has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Nigerian, Habibu Almu, assistant Comptroller of Immigration, who was on Thursday, May 10, found stabbed to death in his residence in Khartoum, Sudan.
The Sudanese authorities, in a statement released by the official news agency SUNA, said the killer is a foreign woman and has been arrested by the police in Sudan.
The Sudanese authorities didn’t disclose the circumstances of the crime or the nationality of the killer.
The suspect has reportedly confessed to the murder of the diplomat and his stolen possessions.
The Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs had earlier stated that a team of policemen have arrested a number of suspected persons as part of investigations into the murder.
Recall that the federal government of Nigeria has strongly condemned the assassination of Almu, who is the Nigerian immigration Attaché I in the Nigerian mission in Khartoum, Sudan.
According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Tope Elias-Fatile, on Friday, May 11, in Abuja, the federal government described the killing as unfortunate.
He said that the mission was working very closely with host authorities in their investigations over the incident.
The spokesperson stated that the government would do everything possible to ensure that those behind this dastardly act are made to face the full wrath of the law.
