The case is now with the state CID under investigation.
“The charges of the case will come out clearly after an autopsy is carried out on the body.”
“One Dr Al-bash Ibrahim Yahaya reported to the police that he slept with a girl and the girl died in his room.
“Dr Al-bash reported to the police that, he was a guest to Yobe State Government who lodged at the government lodge and he asked some boys get him a ‘woman’ and they brought one for him and he slept with her just to discover in the morning that the girl was under the influence of drugs.
“Dr Al-bash said the girl was shivering and doing some funny things. Our preliminary information also revealed that the girl is a drug addict.
“Dr Al-bash called the boys that brought the girl to him and informed them of the development and instead, they came and started administering peak milk to the girl who died in the process.
“What I can tell you now is that we are investigating a case of homicide against Dr. L-Bash Yahaya Ibrahim, a principal suspect and three others. One who procured the girl for him, two of his friends who saw her in an usual condition and started treating her with peak milk.
“We must know whether it was actually peak milk that was administered on her and what really killed her. The cause of the death will have to be established through autopsy results.”
