Protest in Kano as police allegedly tortured 17-year-old boy to death

Ted Odogwu, Kano

Hundreds of youths on Monday protested the alleged death of a 17-year-old boy, Seifuela Dahiru, in the Kano police custody.

They alleged that Dahiru was killed on Sunday night by men of the Nigeria Police Force.

Seifuela, a resident of the Kofa Mata area of Kano, was reportedly watching movies on his mobile phone on Sunday night when some police officers arrested him.

A brother of the deceased, Musa Dahiru, said, “My brother was about to sleep when police stormed the area and arrested him. This (Monday) morning, the Police contacted us (family members) to come and carry his dead body at the Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital.”

He said the late Seifuela, who was into laundry business, had no history of any criminal offence. When contacted, the Kano Police Command spokesman, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, said “the police has commenced investigations into the incident”, promising to brief newsmen in due course.
