Suspected representatives of the Boko Haram sect last night in Rigasa, Kaduna State, killed and disposed of a policeman they are accusing of spying for the police in the community.
This confirms previous SaharaReporters story that Boko Haram has penetrated the Nigerian Police Force, with informants within tipping the militants of surveillance of their activities.
The deceased was killed in his Kaduna home and his killers took his service pistol away.
Our source in the Kaduna Police Command said, however, “We don’t think they are real members of the Boko Haram, but they are just representatives who are spying for the main organization. They might have felt uncomfortable with him reporting them here, and so decided to hack him down so as not to continue being a threat to their spying business for the Boko Haram.”
Rigasa, where President Goodluck Jonathan last year laid the foundation for the Kaduna-Abuja Fast Train project, is said to be one of the most populated communities in Northern Nigeria, hosting thousands of foreigners, mostly Chadians and Nigeriens.
It would be recalled that on April 7, 2011, a bomb exploded in Kaduna during assembly. The prime suspect, one Yahaya, died in the explosion. The only survivor, Mohammed Ahmed, is from Rigasa, but his current whereabouts are unknown.
