“Immediately he committed the alleged crimes, Sale fled to Gombe and it was there our detectives trailed and arrested him.

“Preliminary investigation also shows that the suspect had divorced his wife. He took advantage of her absence to perpetrate the crime,” the spokesman said.

Abdulkarim said the case would be transferred to the state CID, Damaturu, for discreet investigation and subsequent prosecution.
