Operatives of the Kano State Police Command have arrested seven suspects said to be killers of Pastor Shuaibu Yohana, who was the leader of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Sumaila Local Government Area of the State.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that Pastor Yohana was killed by a mob few days ago after he intervened in a case involving one Sabo Idris who was accused of killing his elder brother’s wife, Zainab Balan’iya.

Yohanna was accused of hiding Mr Idris who is a Christian convert, before being lynched by the mob who burnt down his church, house and school.

Police spokesperson in Kano, Abdullahi Kiyawa told BBC Hausa that they arrested six suspects “on the spot”. The seventh suspect was said to have turned himself in. The case has been transferred to the homicide department at the police command headquarters in Bompai, Kano.

Kiyawa said; “In the course of investigation, they said they suspected the pastor of hiding someone who killed his brother’s wife. Another has since reported himself to us, making them seven in number that are connected to the killing of the pastor.

“This is a serious case that you cannot just hastily conclude. You need evidence and we have made headway in the investigation.”

CAN leader, Samuel Adeyemi has also called on the state government to compensate the association over the killing.

Adeyemi said; “The school they burnt, his house that was burnt, we want government to ensure that we are compensated. It is either the government pay us or force those who committed the offence to pay. This will go a long way in convincing us that the government is serious.”
