However, when Meshak’s family were alerted that the victim had died in the hospital, they reportedly mobilised some youths and went to the station to demand that Madgit should be released to them.

The police reportedly informed the youths that the Madgit had been transferred to the Life Camp Police Division for proper investigation.

Not satisfied with the news, the youths destroyed the cars parked outside the police post with sticks, stones, and other dangerous objects, which resulted in a clash between the mob and law enforcement officers.

A source told SaharaReporters that the youths got angry because they believed that the police had freed the suspect.

SP Josephine Adeh, the spokesperson for the FCT police command confirmed to SaharaReporters on Friday that the suspect was still in custody.
