Veteran Journalist Seeks Justice For Slain ASP Son




A veteran journalist and father of an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Sani Malumfashi  who was allegedly stabbed to death in Kebbi State, has urged the Police authorities to fish out killers of his son.

He debunked the claims by the Police authorities that his late son ASP Shuaibu Malumfashi was killed by a fellow police officer of equal rank,  following an altercation between the two uniformed men.

Malumfashi disclosed that the late ASP may have been strangled to death by a group of persons because, according to him, the neck of the 33-year old slain police man was dangling, an indication that he was violently hacked to death not by a single individual as claimed by the Police. 

“When they brought his corpse for ritual bath usually carried out on dead Muslim corpse, We discovered that his neck was dangling, suggesting that he was strangled to death by his killers.

“We believe that one person held his hands to the back and one other strangled him and used a sharp object to pierce his heart and there could also be a third person who was watching over the house while the heinous crime was being carried out.

” Seeing his corpse and the condition it was in, clearly showed that he could not have been killed by a single individual.

” More worrisome is the murder was committed around 2:10 in the afternoon without any clue of how he was murdered.

” Even though he lives alone in a chalet because his wife has just given birth and was away when the act took place,” he said.

Malumfashi, who was a one time chairman of Nigeria Union Of Journalists (NUJ) Kaduna State Council, said the mysteries behind his son’s death should be unraveled and justice served the perpetrators to serve as deterrence against future occurrence of such crime.
