A 26-year old man, Abdulkadiri Nasiru, has been beaten to death at a Police station after his father took him there for questioning over a fight in the neighborhood.
The father of the deceased, Nasiru Madobi, handed over the son to the Madobi Police Station in Kano State after Policemen went to his residence in search of him over a case of fight in the neighborhood.
The embittered father disclosed that as a law abiding citizen, when his son returned home he took him voluntarily to the Police station for interrogation.
“Quarrel ensued when a Policeman started slapping and beating him in my presence after an argument. When another officer joined to beat him, he started retaliating. Three more officers took sticks to beat my son to a pulp, which eventually led to his death.”
“The situation made me leave the Police station immediately as I could not stand the pain of seeing my son being beaten on a simple matter that could be resolved among parents” he said.
Mr. Madobi added that when he got home, he sent the elder brother of the deceased to plead with the Police.
Also narrating how the incident happened, the elder brother to the deceased, Ahmed Nasir, said that the Policemen ignored his pleas and kept beating his brother until he fell down with his mouth foaming.
According to him, he had to pay N8,000 before the Police allowed him to carry his unconscious brother to the hospital, where he was declared dead by doctors.
The family then appealed to the State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the Commissioner of Police to ensure that justice is served.
Spokesman for Kano Police Command, Abdullahi Kiyawa, confirmed the incident, saying four policemen have been arrested.
Mr Kiyawa said the case had been transferred to the Homicide Unit of the Criminal Investigation Department for proper investigation.
He said the Command would take decisive action against officers involved in the killing after investigation.
The Emir of Karaye, Ibrahim Abubakar II, also called for proper investigation into the death, calling on the Commissioner of Police to ensure that all those behind the act were brought to book.
