July 26, 2016 – Nigerian Army Officer’s Younger Brother Mistaken For Boko Haram Member Beaten To Coma In Lagos

A Boko Haram suspect was yesterday beaten to coma in Mile 2 area of Lagos.

The suspect identified as Musbau Ishola wore a turban on a military cap and also had a long beard.

A angry mob who acted on suspicion beat him to stupor before police operatives on patrol intervened.

A police source said the suspect’s elder brother claimed he is a military officer and that the suspect wore his camouflage.

The suspect has been transferred to Lagos police command headquarters.

  1. Exactly, @ Tina.
    Mistaken of identity. But with the security challenges in the country, why dressed suspiciously? He was even lucky not to be burnt to death.

    I take a stroll…

  2. This should send a signal to the Osun and Lagos State governments that recently legalised hijab in public places. If an ordinary man could be mistaken for a threat like this because of our security challenges, imagine what the hijab would present.

  3. how would a civilian wear a cap that belongs to the military men… good for the military brother because if it were to be another civilian that wore the camouflage cap he would have been stripped naked by military men and given the beaten of his life

  4. Eyaaa, sorry you hear, get well soon ok. Its not the mobs fault, but the fault of your appearance and the way the country is now.
