Salisu Muhammad, a football player at Yakasai quarters, Kano municipal local government, has reportedly stabbed Mujitapha Musa, his coach, to death.

The deceased, who sustained injury on his chest following the attack, died on his way to Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital in the state.

According to Daily Trust, the misunderstanding between the suspect and deceased started about six months ago when the former committed a blunder that led to the loss of a football game which the latter considered as a “must win” for their team.

“When I made that blunder, he abused me and abused my parents which made me angry and I threw his jersey and left the field. Ever since then I joined his opponents and opposed them whenever they are having match,” said the suspect in a statement issued to the police.

“Last Saturday, they had a match and as usual, I went to oppose their team. He threatened that he will beat me up whenever he caught me. I saw him when people were returning from viewing centre where they watched Elclassico (Madrid vs Barcelona match).’’

Muhammad added that Musa “suddenly slapped him when they met and began to manhandle him which led him to bring out the knife and stabbed him on the chest.”

In a statement, Haruna Abdullahi, the police spokesman, said the suspect was arrested and the knife with which he stabbed the victim was recovered from him.
