Mob Kills Okada Rider Over False Organ Disappearance Alarm
Police have paraded three suspects who caused the death of a commercial motorcyclist, Usman Abubakar in Aiyetoro – Gbede, Ijumu local government area of the state by accusing him of snatching the male organ of one of them.
The suspects Haruna Adamu 28, Harisu Abdulrasheed 18, and Yakubu Mohammed 23 were among the nine suspects paraded for various deadly offences at a press conference by Kogi Commissioner of Police, Bethrand Onuoha, in Lokoja on Tuesday.
The three suspects were accused of criminal conspiracy, culpable homicide and false alarm leading to the death of Abubakar by the police.
The trio were said to have falsely accused the deceased commercial motorcyclist of snatching the male organ of one of them.
This led lynching of Abubakar in a mob action before the truth could be established.
Another set of suspects, ThankGod Joseph and Monday Mathew, were apprehended for terrorising residents of the Onicha-Igo community in Ofu LGA of Kogi State. Onuoha said the gang was believed to be responsible for a series of armed robbery attacks, assaults, thuggery and mischief in the community.
Onuoha said on 23/03/2023 at about 0130hrs, the hoodlums evaded the house and premises of one Mrs. Rachael Agada, firing guns sporadically, robbed the occupants of their valuable properties, kidnapped the house girl of Mrs Agada, named Nawaitu, and stole her Hilux Van. In addition, he said that on 28/01/2023, the hoodlums killed one Miss Queen Onoja without any just cause.
The remaining suspects are Daniel David, a serial car snatcher, Akoji Ojo, Abdulmumun Zakari and Ali Abdulrahman, said to be kidnappers operating in Lokoja and environs.
According to the CP, the suspects confessed to their various criminal roles in the commission of the crimes and admitted to having carried out several kidnapping, and armed robbery attacks on innocent people as well as travellers on the major highway in the State.
Items recovered from the suspects included three stolen vehicles, arms, ammunition, Jerry cans of oil, handsets, and military uniforms.
“While soliciting for more cooperation from the good people of Kogi State, by continuing to provide credible and timely information to the Police, I want to assure you that the Police Command will not relent in its efforts in crime prevention and public safety in the State.
“Those who engage in criminal activities are warned to desist from such and hand over their arms and ammunition to the Police and engage in something meaningful for their lives or be prepared to face the full consequences of their actions,” the Kogi State police commissioner concluded.
