The Kano Police spokesperson, Musa Majiya, confirmed the incident.

He however said security operatives arrived at the scene promptly but could not trace any of the alleged weapons the man was accused of carrying.

Mr. Magaji, an Assistance Superintendent of Police, said because the unproved allegation, police had commenced investigation into what actually happened.

He warned the public against taking laws into their hands whenever they suspected anything untoward, saying it could lead to attacks on innocent people.

    Islam is a deadly religion.

    • IS.JESUS.CHRIST.A.CHRISTIAN

      Christianity is an incest and gay religion.

      • Abu-Abdallah

        Pls you know that Islam recognises all the prophets and it is a big offence to talk anyhow on each of them and you must believe in them, respect and love them all of them whereas abusing one will attract a death penalty. So pls as a Muslim you must desist from engaging such people that don’t know anything .

        That is not a nice thing to say.I believe the views of Otile is not the view of the generality of Christians just as yours is equally not the view of the generality of Muslims.Let us tolerate and respect each other so that we can build a peaceful and prosperous nation.

        You know the irony? Even if you stand in the middle of the Vatican and scream “Christianity is an incest and gay religion”, Christians will pray for you and give you food, some will smile, other will feel sorry for you, others will try to understand why you say so, some will even hug you, but absolutely no one will harm you. That’s is the difference

            You are wasting your time if you think that Christians will be offended by words. Look of a different strategy.

            Indeed a Christian will be more offended by your body odour, than anything you have to say about Christianity. 🙂

      That is why your hero should do away with his deputy, his national chairman and, the Director general of his campaign organisation because they all profess Islam as a religion. In fact, he should renounce all the votes that Muslims gave him in 2011 and shouldn’t canvass for the votes of anyone that professes Islam.What do you think?

      • Otile

        My hero is Jesus Christ. I don’t have any politician as my hero. Those of you building your hopes on Imam, Tinubu or PDP are building on quicksand. My own help comes from Almighty God who made heaven and earth.

          I am absolutely certain that Jesus Christ did not preach hatred nor did he ask you to condemn or be judgemental on others.In any case, your various comments on several contemporary issues does not in any way, shape or form potray you as a true follower of Jesus Christ.

          • Otile

            As a Musulumi how do you recognize a true follower of Christ?

          • Peace

            A person that truly adhere to the teachings and preaching of Jesus Christ.

            Because the Islam that I practice has taught me about all the virtues that are in other religions including Christianity.

    Hmmm.
    Once your rival shouts” Boko” that’s the end.

      Tragic

  • Truth_Is_Bitter

    These Kano youths should be praised. I give my physical and spiritual support to them. Anyone, I repeat, anyone, who arms himself/herself to kill another for no reason other than combat in an established war situation deserves to die. The suspect acted, and the youth reacted. It is a scientific principle and a fundamental law of Physics – ‘That action and reaction are equal and opposite’.

    The only way the North can save itself from the grip of animistic Boko haram terrorists for whom Buhari’s canvasses amnesty, is to kill them at sight. Yes!…Kill the terrorists at sight. Pure & Simple.

    The terrorists are humans not spirits. They fire their guns with 2 hands and not 3 or 4 hands…therefore, if the youth would look around them, fetch all the terrorists, including the parents who ‘donate’ their little girls for the Jihad against President Jonathan and kill all of them, then and indeed then only will the North be free.

    • objective

      Remember the police said no trace of weapon was found on the deceased. Let us hope people will not employ false Boko Haram labelling as a scores settling measure. God May God help us.

    • kevweMykl

      Yes, Nigeria must fight the war together rather than call on the President all the time. We defeated Ebola together so let’s follow the example of these youth and kill Boko Haram together. Yes! We can

  • Abu-Muhammad

    The evil Christians and their evil Ebola president are at work.
    Hell fire awaited them all.

    • kevweMykl

      Your make people believe Islam is a religion of hate with your evil comment. This why it’s so easy for you people to kill

      • onenigerian2014

        A religion of Anger and killing is Islam, because they are always slamming into anything, everything.

    • Hambolu Segun

      Hear yourself. We have moved on in this country and don’t need draw backs like you.
      Your thinking and assumptions are so horrible.

  • Hambolu Segun

    The people are edgy and tired of their innocent life being wasted daily and little is being done to protect them.

  • Bernard Ogbodobri

    An innocent soul has been lost to jungle justice. The police has investigated and found that the dead man has no links to Boko Haram. He was killed because he received a phone call within the vicinity of the area. No questions were asked and the attackers decended on him, killed and crushed to death. No arrest has been made up till now.
    God is watching.
