A 25-year-old man, Pokyes Danladi, has been brutally stabbed to death by a Fake Soldier identified as Victor Oluwole at a popular drinking joint in West of Mines, Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State.

In the tragic incident, which reportedly happened on Sunday night, Danladi was said to have bled to death when doctors at Birhman Hospital battled in vain to treat him.

According to, the death has shocked Pokyes’ mother, Martha Danladi, a former councillor in Jos North Local Government Area. She is currently on admission at the Nigeria Police Clinic in Jos.

Pokye’s dad, Dakuru Danladi, confirmed his wife’s hospitalisation. He also said that the deceased, ‘baby of the house’, was seeking admission to the university.

The report says the suspect has been arrested by the security agencies, but that the community has been gripped with fear because of speculations that his friends might regroup and cause more havoc.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the Plateau State Police Command, Tyopev Terna, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, confirmed the murder; saying the suspect had confessed to the crime, while the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department.

He said, “One person has been arrested. We don’t need to arrest more people. The suspect was arrested on the spot with the knife and he has confessed to the crime.

“We don’t need any other arrest; it is only when we don’t know the person who committed the act that we can start to look for suspects.

“The suspect said it was just an argument and that he was provoked and had to use the knife on the victim.

“The suspect said it was out of provocation. We wanted to write to Rukuba Barracks to confirm his claim that he was a soldier.

“But on interrogation, the suspect later on confessed that he was not a soldier but just used that as an escape route, not knowing that the Police would not leave him.”

Danladi demanded an investigation of the murder, calling on the government to ensure that justice was done in this matter.
