Nov 5, 2016 – CAN Rejects Freedom Verdict For Killers Of Christian Igbo Woman In Kano, Seeks Justice For Mrs Bridget Agbahime

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Igbo Delegate Assembly in the 19 Northern States (IDA) have expressed disappointment over the discharge of the five suspects accused of murdering Mrs. Bridget Agbahime.

A Kano Magistrate Court, presided by Muhammad Jibril, discharged the suspects, after a no -case submission was entered by the Attorney General of Kano State on the matter.

Both associations insisted that there were direct and sufficient evidences to prosecute the suspects contrary to the advice of the Attorney General of the state to the magistrate court.

The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in the state,

Bishop Ransom Bello, in an interview remarked that the verdict was totally unacceptable adding that the Christian community was grossly disappointed.

He recalled that the state government had pledged to ensure that justice was done in the case but said that the verdict was a far cry from the promises made to religions and community leaders by the government.

He feared that the verdict was capable of setting a negative precedence for other Attorneys-General on how to abort criminal cases, which affect the interests of their indigenes.

He said that CAN was reviewing the situation and would make a formal statement after its deliberation on the matter in the coming days.

Recall that Alhaji Dauda Ahmed,Abdulrahaman Mustafa, Zubairu Abubakar, Abdullahi Abubakar and Musa Abdullahi, all accused persons in the case regained their freedom after a few months in custody.

The deceased, a -74 year old mother was murdered by the released persons at Kofar Wambai market on June 2, 2016 over alleged act of blasphemy.

    Hausas think they can just do anything they like and go free with, here we have Fulani’s killing people and nothing is done about that, Religious killing is escalating in Nigeria and the Government are not doing anything about it.

    by discharging this people it means the Muslim religion is promoting and encouraging religious killing in Nigeria. Hausa’s Barbarians as far am concern

    am sure the producers who mostly will reject her could be Yoruba producers cause most of her movies are Igbo Directors. as we all know that Yoruba never features Igbo’s in movie like Igbo’s features Yorubas in movie even major roles.

    Eg Jenifa’s Diary all the cast are Yorubas but Igbo’s names were used,there so many other more. your name is Mercy and God shown his mercy upon you by taking to the level you are live today. enjoy your moment

    You can be dismissed but mind you or your entire generation will never be set free for the rest of their lives. You have soil your hands with blood and any child that you produce and bring in this world will suffer. You are now released go home eat and as soon as you close your eyes you will be seeing that 74 year old woman so shall it happen to your entire generation. Wicket Muslims youths. You have messed up your generation.

    Is a pity because there are few good Muslims youths out there. The only way you can be set free is to ask for forgiveness of your angry worst sins.

    Sometimes, I tend to envy other smaller African countries. In Kenya for example; recently, the Govt of Kenya gave out an order that for any single Christian killed in the country, four muslims will go down.
    All these nonsense killings would have long stopped if only some measure is taken towards it? Will Nigeria ever come to that?
    May God have mercy on His children.

    I take a stroll…

    If a mere being set them free and God didn’t set them free? Who dare question the Almighty. Nemesis will caught up with them.
