According to Daily Nigerian, Abdulkadir’s father had taken him to the Madobi Police Station for questioning after policemen stormed his residence over a case of neighbourhood gang fight case.

As a law-abiding citizen, when his son returned home Madobi voluntarily took him to the police station for interrogation.

“A quarrel ensued when a policeman started slapping and beating him in my presence after an argument. When another officer joined the quarrel to beat him, he started retaliating,” he said.

According to the father, three more policemen soon took sticks to beat his son to a pulp.

“The situation made me leave the police station immediately as I could not stand the pain of seeing my son being beaten on a simple matter that can be resolved among parents,” he said.

Crying profusely, Mr Madobi added that when he reached home he sent the elder brother of the deceased to plead with the police.
