Governor closes school as suspected rirualist allegedly kills small Boy, body parts removed

Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, has ordered the immediate closure of a school where a teenage boy, Mohammed Abidin Musa was reportedly killed by suspected ritualists.

According to The Nation, Musa’s corpse was found in the school with some of his vital organs removed by suspected ritualists.

However, details of the incident are still sketchy as of the time of filing this report.

The governor, who gave the order on Wednesday, August 30, when he paid a condolence visit to the family of the victim in Gidan Bare-Bari was accompanied by the state commissioner of police, Awal Musa Mohamed, and personnel of the Department of State Services, DSS.

While sympathizing with the family, Mohammed called on parents to be watchful of the movements of their wards.

He also ordered security agencies in the State to intensify efforts to arrest the perpetrators of the barbaric act.

In another development, the governor declared that security is going to be the top priority of his administration in the second tenure.

Mohammed spoke on Wednesday at the opening of the inaugural State Executive Council meeting held at the Government House.

According to him, community engagement will be the key to the fight against insecurity in the state.

He lamented that Bauchi being the gateway to about 7 states in the North-East subregion has been at the receiving end of kidnapping, and banditry as a result of porous borders.

The governor said: “Certainly, what is happening in other states is negatively impacting us. We are a gateway to about 7 states, to all the 3 subregions in the North. And so everything in the country is passing through Bauchi, so definitely, we will be at the receiving end.

“So, it is going to be security, security, and security. With that population and migration, demographics are not in our favour, so our services and infrastructure have been overstretched. Most of our towns and cities are not connected either with electricity or roads and so on.” The governor said.
