In a heartbreaking incident, Alhaji Muftau Mohammed, a resident of Gbeganu Area in Minna, Niger State, lost his life while attempting to secure the release of his two sons from police custody. The elderly man had gone to the Morris Police Division to bail out his sons, Mubarak Ahmed and Yusuf Mohammed, who had been arrested by the police earlier that night.

According to the sons, they were picked up by the police while sleeping outside their house due to the heat. “We were lying down in front of our house around 11:23 p.m. when the police patrol vans passed by. They returned later and asked us what we were doing outside. We explained that we were sleeping there due to the heat. They then arrested us and took us to the station,” Yusuf explained.

Tragically, while in the police station, Alhaji Muftau Mohammed suddenly collapsed and passed away, leaving his sons devastated. The deceased’s neighbor, Mr. Dauda Jimo, who accompanied him to the police station, revealed that Alhaji Mohammed had high blood pressure and was prone to severe headaches when disturbed from sleep.

The news of Alhaji Mohammed’s death caused his wife to faint in shock upon arrival at the police station, according to another neighbor, Alhaji Ahmad Abdullahi.

The Niger State Police Command has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Alhaji Mohammed’s death and will determine if any negligence occurred. The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Wasiu Abiodun, promised necessary disciplinary action if warranted.
