Rival cult gang disrupt burial of 14-year-old member killed in Bauchi


The burial ceremony of 14-year-old Dindara Yusuf who was killed at E4 Resort along the Bauchi-Dass Road, Bauchi State was disrupted by rival cultist gang on Tuesday. 

The deceased was reportedly trailed to an event, tagged, “Facebook Hangout,” which held at E4 Resort along the Bauchi-Dass Road and stabbed with a knife several times on his chest till he died. Though what led to his death is not clear, it was gathered that the stabbing at the Facebook Hangout which attracted many fun-seekers who were mostly teenagers, might not be unconnected with a disagreement over a girl during a party organised by youths in the area.

An eyewitness told Northern City News correspondent; “I attended the hangout but I was not comfortable because the place was very rowdy.

“The teenagers who attended the party were very uncoordinated. I suspected that something was going to go wrong.

“Immediately the party ended, the cultists who were waiting for the deceased attacked him outside the venue of the programme and stabbed him on his chest many times.

“Nobody knew the cultists who killed the boy because it happened in the dark where there was no light, around 9pm. People started running for their dear lives, and some soldiers came to rescue the situation.”

The burial ceremony of Dindara Yusuf which took place at the Christian cemetery in Yelwa, was disrupted by members of the rival cult he belonged to. The rival cultists who insisted that his killers must be fished out before the burial, were reportedly aggrieved over the death of their member.

However the security operatives who were deployed to the area restored normalcy, and the Police Public Relations Officer, Bauchi State Command, who confirmed the incident in a statement, said  seven suspects had so far been arrested in connection with the killing.
