Bauchi vigilantes torture undergraduate to death over mother’s theft allegation

 vigilante group in Bauchi State , Yan Committee , has tortured a 21 - year -old undergraduate to death on allegations by his mother that he stole her wrapper .

The incident was said to have occurred on Sunday .
The deceased, Abdulsalam Ibrahim , was a 300 -level Political Science student of the Bauchi State University , Gadau.

It was gathered that the deceased’s mother , Aisha Ibrahim , reported him to the vigilante group to discipline him , because he allegedly stole her wrapper from their home in the Zango area of Bauchi metropolis .

A close neighbour of the deceased’s family, who gave his name simply as Ningi, said Aisha accused her son of stealing her wrapper estimated at less than N 3 ,000 .

He added that after she questioned him and Abdulsalam denied the accusation , Aish invited the vigilante group , which took the undergraduate to its office and tortured him to death .

Ningi said , “ It was a sad day for us, especially looking at the circumstances that led to the death of Abdulsalam . Parents should always endeavour to settle matters at home .

“ Taking your child to outsiders for disciplinary measures because of small mistakes is not a solution . Every household has its own peculiar domestic problems.

“ I don ’t think the mother will ever forgive herself for allowing her anger to make her take such an irrational decision that has cost her family the loss of a promising young man.”

Another neighbour , who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that the mother was of questionable character as she had also been allegedly caught stealing from a shop .

The neighbour stated , “ The mother had been caught shoplifting in markets . She even shoplifts bread from provisions shops. But because of sheer wickedness , the vigilantes sent a message to her that due to the torture , her son had soiled his clothes .

“ She did not even bother to go and see him , but only sent another set of clothes to them to give him to change . I don ’t know why that woman has not been arrested .”

An eyewitness said the deceased was hit on the head with a bamboo stick, his fingernails forcefully removed and he was beaten to a state of unconsciousness that he never recovered from .
The state Police Public Relations Officer , Ahmed Wakil , who confirmed the incident , said it was a case of culpable homicide .

He stated that three suspects had been apprehended in connection with the incident .
Wakil , a Deputy Superintendent of Police said, “ The principal suspect is one Adamu Babayo ; the other two suspects are Sani Babayo and one Abubakar. One other suspect is still at large .”
