Last week, 75 year old Bridget Agbahime was tragically murdered by a rampaging, bloodthirsty mob at Kano’s Kofar Wambai Market. She was accused of blaspheming the Prophet Mohammed before being clubbed to death.
The man who led the pack of murderers, Dauda Ahmad is pictured above with his alleged cohorts.
The dastardly act sparked national outrage and calls for the perpetrators to be brought to justice, including the first citizens of Nigeria and Kano, President Muhmmadu Buhari and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano respectively.
Today, the police in Kano arraigned five men: Dauda Ahmad, Abdullahi Mustapha, Zubairu Abubakar, Abdullahi Abubakar and Musa Abdullahi before Chief Magistrate Court on a four-count charge.
The suspects were charged with incitement, culpable homicide and mischief, based on sections 144, 80, 51 and 327 of the penal code.
Dauda Ahmad, who is the prime suspect, was accused of leading others to attack and club Mrs. Agbahime to death.
If found guilty, Mr. Ahmad could face the death penalty.
