Zamfara security operatives allegedly kill prominent Islamic scholar

A prominent Islamic scholar, Sheik Abubakar Hassan Mada, was allegedly killed by operatives of a Zamfara State security outfit, Community Protection Guards (CPG).

The incident occurred when the CPG operatives reportedly stormed Sheik Mada’s residence, picked him up, and took him to an unknown destination for questioning regarding some undisclosed security issues.

According to a resident of Mada town who spoke anonymously, the CPG operatives arrived at Sheik Mada’s residence around 3:30 pm while he was teaching children.

They then took him a few meters outside the town and allegedly slaughtered him.

“They came directly to his residence at around 3:30 pm when he was busy teaching our children and took him away. In less than 30 minutes, we only heard that they slaughtered him,” the resident said.

Efforts to reach the state Commandant of CPG, Col. Yandoto (Rtd) were not successful as at the time of compiling the report.

The funeral prayers for the late Sheik Mada have been scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
