ANOTHER POLICE BRUTALITY (KILLING)
The police outpost of Kofare division located at Sengere along welcome to Yola brutalized a 25year old tailor to dead.
The 25 year old Muhammed Bashir was taken to the said police outpost on Friday 10th August, 2018. He was arrested based on suspicious that he bought some stolen wrappers. On Saturday when an elder brother to the suspect took food to him, he was also detained.
The next day been Sunday, a certain police officer popularly known as “Kaka” descended on the duo, he beat them merciless to the point Muhammed became unconscious. From there he was taken to hospital (Yola specialist),when his condition didn’t improved he was then referred to FMC Yola on Wednesday 15th August , but still Muhammed was in coma, he finally gave up(He died) early hours of Saturday. When i observed the corpse of late Muhammed, I found out there are serious physical injuries on the carcass, I even snap some of the injuries.
I had discussions with the victim’s father and elder brother at the mortuary which made me too emotional to even write about it. The police or Kaka in particular most be responsible for the dead of poor Muhammed.
I am asking for the support of all good people of the state to assist us in bringing the culprit to book, let there be justice. A point of note is that, from the day Muhammed was beaten that’s Sunday 12 August he had not spoken up to the time he died on Saturday 18th.
Will keep you updated
May the soul of poor Muhammed rest in peace
