Tribute on the death of three people killed by police at Trikania.
Sani, Musa and Ali are no longer with us, they are no more, they have been gruesomely killed by the police.
What else left, what have they done to deserved this death, to die in this way? they are killed because they are struggling to make either a living or defend those who are looking for their daily bread.
For whatever reason or offence, they might have committed, provided they have not killed anyone, they didn’t deserved to die in the hands of those that supposed to protect them.
They all woke up yersterday monday, without the premonition that they would be killed by the police with the support of the JTF who created the atmosphere for the evil to take place.
In Northern Nigeria, life is comparable to that of a chicken, a slight offence can be met with death warrant by the law keepers who have become altogether law breakers.
Sani, Musa and Ali and some yet to be identified are gone just yersterday, covid19 could not killed us but still they must find ways of reducing us through the state instrumentality.
May Allah forgive them and grant them peace in their next world. Oh!!Allah help us, because, in northern Nigeria, we have become useless, our lives are under constant threat both from state and non-state actors.
