Farmer petitions police over extrajudicial killings in Niger

A farmer in Tagina Kabata Village in the Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State, Mohammed Alhaji, has petitioned the state Commissioner of Police over alleged extrajudicial killings, robbery and extortion by one Zakari Alawa, the chairman of the vigilance group in the area.

He prayed the CP to order a full-scale investigation into the matter, with a view to prosecuting Alawa and his accomplices.

In the petition, Alhaji accused Alawa of theft of N780,000, extortion and killing in the area, adding that members of Alawa’s vigilance group stormed a mosque in May, 2017 and abducted seven people and  took them to an unknown destination.

The petition was filed by Alhaji’s lawyer, Ibadur-Rahman Associates, and it was dated June 2, 2017.

It read in part, “On May 5, 2017, our client said that Abubakar Usman, 60, Aliyu Usman, 57, Buderi Idiris, 25, Ahmadu Usman, 35, Umaru Usman, 12, Abubakar kadiri, 57 and Ilu  Dere, 25, were praying in the mosque when a team of vigilance men led by Zakari Alawa, their chairman, stormed the mosque and whisked them away and since then, they had neither seen the abducted men nor heard from them.

“Our client went to Alawa to know their whereabouts, but Alawa told our client that he had handed them over to the military. He extorted N70,000 from our client which he promised to give to the military for the release of the seven missing men.”

 Alhaji said he visited the nearby military personnel and also made enquiries at the Kagara Divisional Police station, but they denied having the men in their custody.

He said, “I went to the military and was told that nobody was handed over to them and I further went to police stations in the area but could not trace them and I concluded that the men may have been killed by the vigilance group for no reason.”
