A young student has been left hanging between life and death after police officers brutalized him for no cause.
According to Jimeta, the young man, Kabiru Ahmed, was almost beaten to death by men of the police force of Adamawa State Police Command, Yola, because he demanded to know what he and other young men they arrested in his area, did.

Jimeta, on his posts, asked pertinent questions under the hashtag, #JusticForKabiru:
"Over the years, men of Nigerian Police Force have created bad Image as the Violators of Fundamental human right. According to a reliable Source, Kabiru’s Crime was demanding an explanation on the reason of an arrest about to be launched in his area, only to become the victim.
The primary suspects were left and Kabiru was bundled into the police vehicle and conveyed to Double Station here in Jimeta. There, the policemen attached to the station, brutalized the innocent Kabiru to a coma and left him with no medical attention.
His family were later in the night called (after denying access to him severally), to report to the station and evacuate their son’s lifeless body. Presently, the perpetrators of this dastardly act have continued their usual daily business while the lifeless body of Kabiru lays in FMC, Yola, helplessly hanging between life and death.
Close to a month now, Kabiru still remains in a deadly coma and there was no single effort either from the perpetrators, their DPO or the state Police Commissioner to show their remorse on this unholy act.

Personally, I feel more than sympathy for this innocent young man; in fact, I feel deep empathy for Kabiru not just for his family’s financial incapacitation, but for the saddest part of the whole story that Kabiru is presently on the verge of losing his spinal cord. Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajiun.
"For these and the basic fact that tomorrow might be me or you, we demand Justice for Kabiru.
1- We call on the well to do in our society to come to the aid of Kabiru by supporting his family so as to have better medical attention elsewhere.
2- We insist that the IG and CP must take full responsibility and do everything possible to ensure the recuperation of Kabiru.
3- We further insist that the perpetrators must face the full wrath of the law so as to serve as a deterrent for their likes and ensure Justice prevails.
We call on all stakeholders #Media, #Humanrightactivists, to join us in this. Police is not above the law.
