Manu Dogari, 72 years old palac guard brutally attack to half death by betrothed uncle 


A 72-year-old palace guard, Manu Dogari, was brutally attacked and left in a coma by the uncle of his betrothed.

The shocking incident was said to have occurred on June recently, in Ngelzama town, the Fune Local Government Area of Yobe State.

According to reports, the victim had visited the lady, Adama, whom he intended to marry. As they were discussing, Adama’s uncle, Malam Adamu Sai Baba, aged 63, passed by and noticed the septuagenarian with his niece.

An eyewitness said Sai Baba attacked Dogari with a hoe on his head, causing him to fall into a coma.

The witness added that the dispute originated when Dogari expressed his desire to marry Adama, who happened to be a widow, a move her uncle strongly objected to.

Despite the uncle’s disapproval, Dogari remained resolute.

The victim was rushed to the Specialist Hospital in Damaturu for immediate medical attention.

When contacted by newsmen, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Yobe State Command, DSP Dungus Abdulkarim, confirmed the incident.

“The incident occurred in Angwa Sarki, Sabon Gari, Ngelzama. The suspect has been apprehended, and an investigation is currently underway”, DSP Abdulkarim said
