Ms Muhibat Taiwo Abdulsalam, a staff of the Federal Competitive Consumer Protection Commission FCCPC, Katsina Branch, has allegedly killed her boss right in his office, broad daylight, accusing him of sexual harassment.
According to a source who pleaded anonymity, Muhibat had a money dispute with her boss, Julius Haruna, the Northwest Zonal Coordinator, FCCPC earlier on the fateful day he was allegedly killed.
Unknown to other colleagues in their office, Muhibat had gone to the Katsina GRA Police Station to report her boss for sexual harassment.
Muhibat who heads the Consumer Education Department for the Commission in Katsina was said to have returned to the office in Modoji Area, after the Zuhur Muslim prayer with two Police Officers to invite her boss for questioning but unfortunately met his lifeless body lying on the floor, with his clothes torn and bruises over his upper body.
It was gathered that Julius Haruna, 57, had reported Ms Muhibat severally to the Head Office for acts of insubordination.
While confirming the report of the demise of the FCCPC Zonal Coordinator, the elder brother of the deceased, Aegidius Haruna said “from the statement given and what I heard, they quarrelled over money approved for her in the office because she needed extra which he refused to oblige. I think that is how the problem started.
“We are shocked by his death. Our family members sent me here to seek justice for his death,” Aegidius noted in a brief statement.
Contrarily, Muhibat on her part is accusing her late boss and their office accountant of sexual harassment, feigning ignorance of his death before rushing to the Police to seek protection from her assaulters, a source who does not wish to be named said.
Sources who claimed to have seen Muhibat after she was accompanied by the police to their office said she looked unruffled and without bruises unlike the deceased who assaulted her.
According to the elder brother, Muhibat who is currently detained at the GRA Police station would be moved in due course to the state CID for further investigation.
