El-Rufai Condemns Lynching Of 3 Suspected Bandits’ ‘Spies’ In Kaduna


BY SEGUN ADEBAYO – The Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai has directed security agencies to investigate the incident involving the alleged lynching of three persons suspected to be informants of bandits operating in Zangon Aya village, Igabi Local Government Area of the state.

Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the governor’s directive followed reports by security agencies that a man, his wife, and son were lynched by a mob in the community on Monday for the alleged crime.

In a statement to the media in Kaduna on Tuesday, Aruwan said; “The mob action was in response to the suspects’ alleged collaboration with bandits, especially in relation to recent kidnappings in the area. After the killings, the mob also looted and burnt their home.”

According to the commissioner, the governor was sad and deeply worried by the violent action and strongly condemned the extra-judicial killings by people taking laws into their hands without recourse to justice and fair trial,

Aruwan said the government strongly believes that legitimate proceedures should always be adopted in confronting suspicions of criminality, as the destructive practice of self-help would only result in greater harm to society.

Consequently, he said Governor el-Rufai is pleading with all citizens of Kaduna state to always be law-abiding and immediately report suspects or suspected criminal activities to the Police and other constituted authorities in the State
