Police torture boy,17, to death in Kano

Citizens of Kano embarked on violent protest as police tortured a 17-year-old boy Saifullahi, to death.

Sources said Saifullahi of Kofar Mata quarters was hail and hearty when he was arrested, only for them to torture him to death.

“Saifullah’s death angered the public because he was never known for any criminal tendencies even as he was kept in police custody where he allegedly gave up the spirit”, resident said.

It is reliably gathered that Saifullahhi had been released on bail only for him to be re-arrested and detained him again, where he was allegedly tortured, a situation that led to his death.
