Two in Police Net For Breaking Into Bauchi Missionary School Staff Quarters

Police operatives in Bauchi have arrested two suspects for allegedly trespassing into Bishop Moore Memorial Staff School Staff Quarters in Guru, a community on the outskirts of Bauchi metropolis. 

Our correspondent reports that irate youths in the area lynched one of the suspects after chasing him to a mountain before the intervention of local vigilantes and police. 

Police investigation revealed that the suspects specialized in breaking into students’ compounds with dangerous weapons during dark hours in Wuntin Dada. The suspects revealed that they operated using cutlasses and sticks.

The arrested suspects are Suleiman Adamu,19-year-old and Umar Abubakar, a 19-year-old believed to be accomplices to the deceased hoodlum. They are being interrogated for arraignment in court for prosecution.  

Items recovered from them include two machetes, 18 mobile phones, two laptops and three MP3s.

Bauchi Police Deny Torturing Suspect To Death

Reacting to the incident, Commissioner of Police Bauchi State Command, Auwal Musa Mohammed in a statement signed by Spokesperson of the Command, Ahmed Mohammed Wakil, frowned at the action of the irate youths who instead of taking the suspect to the Police for proper investigation and prosecution, lynched the suspect for the alleged offence to death without any recourse to the law.

He described the act as barbaric and inimical to the law governing our dear country, adding that the police will not tolerate or allow some recalcitrant in the society to take the laws into their hands.
The Commissioner of Police said nobody has the right to treat a suspect in such a brutal manner and it is wrong for anyone to assume the position of a law enforcement agency.
