On Wednesday, May 5, two robbery suspects were lynched by a mob in Yamadawa Quarter, Gwale Local Government Area, Kano State, for allegedly attempting to snatch a vehicle.
Abdullahi Isma'il, 24, of Sani Mainagge Quarters in Kano metropolis, and Abubakar Hussain, 24, of Kankara LGA in Katsina State, allegedly made their move when residents were breaking their Ramadan fast Wednesday evening.
It allegedly attracted the attention of some locals, who confirmed it. Following the alarm, the suspects were arrested after the area was cordoned off. Isma'il, on the other hand, died as a result of the lynching's injuries.
Abdullahi Kiyawa, a police spokesperson in Kano, said: “They were found with a gun and a knife.
Suspects were rushed to Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital in Kano for care after suffering multiple injuries. A medical doctor, however, confirmed Abdullahi Isma'il's death.
The case has been moved to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Command for discreet investigation, according to State Police Commissioner Sama'ila Dikko."
