“Yahu Salisu was shot in the buttocks while Ibrahim Abdullahi died of torture.

“Lucky Njoku was beaten to death by prison guards, he died of the wounds inflicted on him.

“Ibrahim Abubakar died yesterday too from the beatings he received from the prison guards.”

The publication adds that when they contacted Muhammad Jalige, spokesperson for the Kaduna State Police Command, on the issue, he said it was “an internal problem between staff and inmates” of the correctional facility.
