Yusuf, in a letter of complaint he personally signed and copied relevant security agencies, pointed accusing fingers on the vigilante group as principal suspects. His letter titled, " Complain On Extrajudicial Killing Of Abdullahi Abbati At Gwiwa Low Cost, Sokoto" alleged that, his nephew's lifeless body was found lying stone dead by the road side beside the house of one certain Yunusa, also known as Oho dai at about 7am on he 26th August, In his deepest shock while narrating the psychological trauma of Abdullahi's unnatural death in the hands of those that should ideally help in promoting peace, Yusuf warned that if nothing is done to forestall such occurrence, then it's a synopsis to future anarchy.
It would be unfair and gross act of injustice, if nothing is done to bring the culprits to book; more people would fall victim to the same jungle justice, which is a sign of anarchy and flagrant disregard to the constituted authority which is unacceptable. When contacted on the development, Sokoto Police commissioner, CP Murtala Mani, said investigation into the alleged murder of Abdullahi Abbati has commenced. Speaking through the command's public relations officer PRO , DSP Cordelia Nwawe, the police assured that they would leave no stone unturned in their resolve to ensure that the state continues to retain its glory as the most peaceful in Nigeria.
Mani further assured they would never relent in their quest to safeguarding the lives and property of every human being in the state. Much as the CP's assurance of ensuring that the command continue to do everything within its powers to ensure perpetrators are brought to book and that the state continues to remain peaceful, the question begging to be answered by the bereaved family of Abdullahi Abbati is when would this justice be meted out on those that killed their child?
