A student of the School of Environmental Studies Gwarzo who was among those that besieged the Gwarzo Police Division in Gwarzo Local Government Area of Kano State was killed at the weekend.

The students staged a protest Saturday at the police station to demand for justice over the death of one of their colleagues who was allegedly killed by another student from the Government Secondary School, Gwarzo.

Findings showed that when the students gathered at the police station asking the police to handover the suspect to them in order to avenge the killing of their colleague, the police refused and asked them to disperse. During the ensuing protest, the police allegedly fired canisters of teargas and later shot dead one Tahir Kabir, and injured at least three others.

The students earlier blocked the major entrance to the town and set bonfires along the road.

It was gathered that the three injured students were admitted at Gwarzo General Hospital and later discharged after treatment, while the two schools were however closed pending the resolution of the crisis.

Sources at the village said the suspect had a disagreement with another student called Aliyu S. Aliyu over a handset. A few days after the disagreement, Aliyu was declared missing and five days later, his decomposing corpse was found on the outskirts of the town.

Police however arrested the person suspected to have had disagreement with Aliyu over the handset. Upon investigation by the police, the suspect confessed to killing Aliyu.

Public Relations Officer of Kano Police Command SP Baba Mohammed Azare confirmed the incident, saying they were yet to ascertain the cause of Kabir’s death as the autopsy report was not ready.

He said the students had thrown pebbles in order to free the suspect from the police station, noting that the cause of Kabir’s death might either be a stone or a bullet. “We are yet to receive the report, and so we cannot jump into conclusion. Without the report, we cannot take action against any suspect,” said the police spokesman.
