Bike Rider Killed by Nigerian Chief Of Army Staff Convoy In Katsina

The Nigerian chief of army staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai’s Convoy’s allegedly killed a man in katsina on Monday. The man who is a bike rider was sharing wedding invitations around the Mani house junction where the accident that led to his death occurred.

Yusuf Buratai who was in Daura at the time of the accident was trying to ensure and maintain lasting peace and security in katsina and the Northwest region, whereas his convoy didn’t seem to be after the security of the people as they hit a man and left his body on the road and fled from the scene of the accident.


Don’t we find this very ironic that their mission in katsina was to protect the people there, but instead a person died because of them and they weren’t concerned about it ?

Can we really entrust a state’s security affairs into the the chief of army staff if his convoy cannot even care about the life of a bike rider but would rather leave him for dead talk more of a whole state ?

What should be the best course of action to be taken against the perpetrators of this act ? Do you think they will be held accountable by the law/ justice system ?
