Police claim ‘only two people were killed’ in Kano’s violence

The Kano State Police Command has stated that “only two people were killed” in the religious violence that gripped the ancient town of Bichi in Kano state on Thursday.

A statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, Magaji Musa Majiya confirmed the incident on Friday claiming that “Only two people were killed, eight shops and a house were burnt during the protest while two others sustained injury.”

The civil disturbance erupted in Bichi Local Government Area on Thursday, when an Igbo man was accused of blasphemy on the cloth sewed by the tailor and some residents went on rampage and this reportedly led to the death of four people.

15 shops and one church were also alleged to have been razed down.

Meanwhile, the command claimed that 22 suspects were arrested as normalcy has been restored at Bichi town, adding that “residents are going about their normal businesses without any hindrance as patrol has been intensified.”

“The command will not relent in its effort to investigate the root of the inferno and whoever is involved will be arrested and be made to face the wrath of the law accordingly” stated the police spokesperson.

“People are therefore called to continue to live in peace and pay due respect to each other’s way of life without any form of provocation” the statement concluded.

    Igbos should re think, how long shall we wait for these primitive animals to keep disturbing our peace. All Southerners and Middle Belt indigenes should leave the North and come back home so that we will declare real war and wipe them out.

    the concluding part of the police statement indicates who they think was at fault..”People are therefore called to continue to live in peace and pay due respect to each other’s way of life without any form of provocation”.  I would think there would also have been a strong statement like ‘people should never take laws into their hands no matter the provocation’. It is this type of police thinking that makes police stations always unsafe for people during these crazy orgies of violence that are charateristic of the northern parts of Nigeria. That is why nobody ever gets punished and that is why it will continue. The problem is not the guy who allegedly balsphemes, it is the people who are too disrespectful of human life to even have brains at all. Northerners are simply blood thirsty people.
