Pokyes Danladi resides in West of Mines community in Jos North Local Government Area.

If he had known, he would have stood down and avoided the argument with Mr. Oluwole. What started as a simple disagreement of opinion led to his death.

The incident is already causing tension in the community, as Oluwole’s gang members have threatened to wreak havoc.

It was learnt that Pokyes’ mother, 60-year-old Martha Danladi, was hospitalised over the shock of her son’s death at the Nigeria Police Clinic in Jos.

The father of the deceased, Dakuru Danladi, demanded an investigation into the killing, calling on the government to ensure that justice is served.

The Plateau State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Tyopev Terna, confirmed the incident, adding that the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department.

He said, “The suspect was arrested on the spot with the knife and he has confessed to the crime. The suspect said it was just an argument and he was provoked and had to use the knife on the victim.”
