A man identified as Yunusa was killed by a mob after allegedly making blasphemous comments against Prophet Muhammad at the Nasaru police outpost in Ningi Local Government Area of Bauchi State. 

The incident occurred around 3pm on Wednesday following an argument between Yunusa and another person.

 An eyewitness, who wished to remain anonymous, detailed how the police initially rescued Yunusa when the mob began to attack him.

“The police took the accused to their outpost within the community, but the mob overpowered them and killed him. 

“Yunusa died at the police outpost in Nasaru and the mob took his corpse to Ningi Police Division because the police couldn’t control or prevent them,” the eyewitness said.

Bauchi State Police Command has confirmed the incident.

In a statement signed by the command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ahmed Mohammed Wakil, the Commissioner of Police, Auwal Musa Muhammad, condemned the actions that led to the loss of life and stressed the importance of upholding the law. 

The command assured the public of heightened surveillance patrols to ensure safety and security.
