One source who identified as a relative to the late Zeloti said he will seek justice for his late kin.

“We are deeply saddened by the death of our relative. Zeloti didn’t deserve to die. Before this tragedy occurred, Zeloti was making everyone around the neighborhood very happy. We didn’t know he would die the same day. I hope he gets justice.

“As we know it, the fight was over a girl who we are yet to identify. They started quarreling, then it degenerated to fighting and now Zeloti is dead,” he said.

Vanguard learned that late Zeloti was buried yesterday by mourning friends and family.

Meanwhile, the Bauchi Police Command has confirmed the incident through the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ahmed Wakili who said that the case of culpable homicide was reported from the Dass Police Division and has been transferred to the appropriate unit for further investigations.
