A young man Abubakar Musa who witnessed the incidence told Cyboknews reporter that they were celebrating at the popular Doki around 9:00pm Wednesday when some policemen stormed the area and asked them to disperse before 10:00pm which they obliged.
‘while we were jubilating around 9:00pm, some policemen asked us to leave the area before 10:00pm and we agreed with their request. But before we dispersed, the same group of policemen started tear gassing us and later opened fire on us resulting in the death of Abdurrahman Muhammad Jimba as another was injured,he said.
Musa said the policeman who fired the shot popularly called Corporal Isaiah is notorious in the area for harassing people and has been extorting money from them.
While narrating his ordeal, the father of the deceased, Mallam Muhammad Jimba confirmed the development adding since the incident, he is yet to receive any correspondence from the police command over the incident.
Jimba added that the deceased has since been buried according to Islamic rites. He is calling on the authorities to investigate the matter with a view to bringing the culprit to justice.
When contacted over the incident, the PPRO Adamawa State police command DSP Othman Abubakar said they are investigating the matter.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
