According to news report coming in to Jimstoryland, it’s learnt that a vigilante has killed an attendant of a Point of Sale shop in Adamawa State and stolen the cash balance of the day.

Nuhu Dauda (the vigilante), was identified as a 28-year-old regular customer at the POS shop located in New Badisa, a community in Girei Local Government Area.

Report coming in said that on Sunday morning, the suspect went to the shop on Saturday, strangled the female attendant, a 12-year-old secondary school student, and took all the money he could find.

He also took away the POS machine at the shop, but has since been arrested and now in police custody.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, in the person of Suleiman Nguroje, said the suspect had been arrested and found to be a member of a vigilante group operating in the community.

“The victim’s family members are helping the police with useful information for a wider investigation,” the PPRO said.

The victim, Jemima Reuben, is said to be a student of First Baptist Academy, Yola, who was using the coronavirus forced holiday to work at the POS shop but was said to be preparing to resume school on Monday, October 12 when all schools in Adamawa State are scheduled to reopen.
