The high rate of insecurity in Nigeria is quite alarming. Nobody is safe in the dubious hands of these criminals. Fear, anxiety and panic have become the order of the day. Even the security personnels are preys to these criminals. Samuel Jiyah, a member of the vigilante group has been reportedly murdered by some suspected criminals, who are known for snatching motorcycles from unsuspecting bike owners in Lade village in the Patigi local government area of Kwara state.
According to an eyewitness, Jiyah was murdered while his Bajaj motorcycle including his valuables were carted away by the suspected criminals.
Also the in-law of the deceased, Mr Tsado Isaac and one of his friend,Gbenga Aro told the NIGERIAN TRIBUNE that the victim was attacked by one of the bike snatcher in Lade Village. In their words;
“They attacked him when he was returning from Ekati around Gbadebo farms in the night while returning from his village. His corpse was found in a bushy area by women who were fetching firewood for domestic use in the farm on Saturday morning. Jiyah’s remain was seen in a bush close to the road. The women who found his body could not do anything but called attention of others. The women, who drew the attention of passers-by going to the farm, failed to recognize him too. The men who didn’t recognize the victim, also called others from Lade village but his ex-landlord identified him easily”.
Mr Tsado added that the family of Jiyah has been informed and his remains have been taken by his family and buried immediately.
