“How DPO tortured my son to death, brought his corpse in Police hilux”

Mother of one of two suspected chicken thieves allegedly beaten to death by a top Police officer in Bauchi State, has described the day Police brought his corpse as the saddest day of her life.

Hajara Ismail, who spoke of her grief at the NUJ Secretariat, on Tuesday, narrated how her son, Ibrahim Kampanlala, was brought home dead in a Police Hilux.

“The Policeman, who brought my dead son, took him from the car and dumped him on the ground. He fell on his and that time, unknown to us, he had already died,” she said.

“I don’t know what my son did to the Police. When Police came, they entered our house and asked some boys to carry him and they asked them to dump him for me inside the house.”


“Then, the DPO (names withheld) said, “here’s the corpse of your son, he’s a robber, we arrested him,” then he turned and left and he turned again and said “we were not the people who did this to him, we too picked him like that and we brought him to you.” Then, we picked him and put him inside the room and he never moved, he had died.”

According to one of the male victims, Abdulwahab Bello, who survived the alleged beating, he said the DPO tied them to a tree and used piston to hit their knees, legs and heads, which resulted to the death of Ibrahim kampalala and Ibrahim Babangida.

Hajara, pleaded with those in authority to ensure that justice is served on behalf of her dead son.

The Police Public Relations Officer of the State Command, DSP Ahmed Wakil, while speaking with journalist on the issue on Wednesday, disclosed that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Lawan Tanko Jamita has ordered for an investigation into the matter.
