Police Move Alleged Killers Of Sokoto Butcher To Abuja

The Nigeria Police Force has moved the alleged killers of a butcher, Usman Buda, who was killed by a mob in June in Sokoto State, to Abuja.

Naija News recalls that Buda was killed by a mob for alleged blasphemy in Sokoto about two months ago.

The butcher was moved for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad during an argument at Sokoto Modern Abattoir market.

In a viral audio file obtained by SaharaReporters, a veterinary doctor narrated the events that led to the gruesome murder of Buda, claiming he  was wrongfully accused by the mob who killed him.

The police had on Thursday confirmed the arrest of at least eight suspects who participated in the gruesome killing of Buda.

Speaking to SaharaReporters on Friday, Sokoto Police Public Relations Officer, Rufai Ahmad, said they were transferred to Abuja for further investigation by the force.

Ahmed explained that “If a case is said to be transferred to Abuja, it will go along with the suspects now, how would you take a case to Abuja and leave the suspects here in Sokoto? All of them (arrested suspects) have been transferred.

“Before the case was transferred to Abuja, two weeks ago, we arrested two suspects, and the officers in Abuja later arrested more suspects. They (Force Headquarters) arrested about six to seven more suspects.”
