20-year-old Man Killed By Tailor Over Sallah Clothes In Zaria
What appeared like a normal disagreement between a tailor, Inyasi Musa Aliyu Mai Yasin of Sabon Layi Tudun Wada, Zaria over non-fulfillment of sewing of cloth with his customer, Bashir Shehu Ibrahim (20 years) has resulted to the death of the customer.
A relative to the deceased, Rabi’u Ibrahim said, the issue was all about the sewing of cloth which late Bashir gave to Inyasi who is a tailor for the Eid-el-fitr (karamar Sallah) which the tailor did not sow, despite paying him the money he charge.
It was reported that when late Bashir went to the tailor’s shop on that fateful day, with the intention of collecting his cloths, a disagreement ensued between them as the cloth was not ready.
According to Rabiu, they were neighbours for many years but Inyasi ignored the long relationship and went ahead to injure the victim with a scissors. He said, “We rushed him to hospital but within 10 minutes of the happening, he died.
“As we were returning from the hospital with the corpse of late Bashir, the father of Inyasi called the police and handed Inyasi to them, telling them that he is the one that killed Bashir,” he explained.
The Divisional Police Officer, Tudun Wada, Zaria, confirmed the incident to be true of what happened, stressing that they have forwarded the matter to the State Command for further investigations and actions.
