Also, the same NDLEA officers of the Jigawa State Command were said to be instrumental in the death of another 25 year Saidu Adamu, an indigene of Ajawa quarters under Shuwarin districts of kiyawa local government who was arrested by the NDLEA Personnel on deteriorating health condition and refused him to have access to medical attention which led to a worsening situation in their custody and later died hours after he was returned.

The Communities in Dutse Emirate under the balcony of the Dutse Development Association, DEDA, reported this to Africa Security Investigation News stating that there has been a series of illegal killings by the NDLEA officers in the Emirate and the State in general.

According to the DEDA Secretary, Ado Garba jangargari, “NDLEA officers in Jigawa State have been exercising their power contrary to the core values, mission, and objectives of its organization as they have been engaged in the killing of innocent citizens.

” The killings were not even cautious of the lingering insecurity situation in the north as of now.

“So far, on record, we have experienced two unjustifiable killings of our innocent indigenes by the NDLEA officers, because they don’t smoke, they don’t drink nor do they take drugs. These we can attest to.
If actions are not taken to curb this challenge through the instrumentality of investigating the death of Murtala Gambo and others on record, and the culprits brought to book, we wouldn’t continue to watch while the innocent are been killed in the society”.

Ethically, in a bid to balance the report, our state correspondent, contacted the Jigawa NDLEA Command, where he was told the State Commander wasn’t on his seat. The Deputy Commander, who gave his name as Mr. H. Ugwuke was asked questions regards the ugly incident. His response was, “they are aware of the issues but only the commander has the right to brief the press”.
