The police in Kebbi State have arrested six vigilance group members for allegedly killing suspected kidnappers.
The state Police Commissioner, Mr. Garba Danjuma, disclosed this yesterday at a news conference in Birnin Kebbi.
He said vigilance groups from Kanji village, Mahuta district, Fakai Local Government arrested two men – Muhammad Dankarami and Muhammadu Buda of Maidangwami village, suspected to be kidnappers.
He said the suspects were not given opportunity to explain themselves, but were killed by the vigilantes and their bodies set ablaze.
According to him, the suspected vigilantes were arrested and had owned up to the alleged crime.
Danjuma said: “You will agree with me it is an extra- judicial killing and inhuman on the part of the suspects. Such an act is condemnable and can’t be tolerated in the country.”
He, however, appealed to the public to see fighting crime as a collective responsibility, adding: “We should continue to partner to maintain our status as the safest state in Nigeria.” (The Nation)
