A suspected Boko Haram insurgent was killed near the Kano Central Mosque on Friday.

Magaji Majiya, the police public relations officer in the state, confirmed the incident, saying it occurred around 11:30 am.

Majiya said the suspect was stoned to death after being trailed from Kabara area to Kofar Kwaru near the Central Mosque (pictured).

The police boss added that the suspect was already in a state of coma when security personnel arrived at the scene and that he died shortly afterwards.

“The corpse of the suspect has already been deposited at the hospital morgue,” he revealed.

Majiya, who said nothing incriminating was discovered on him, warned members of the public against taking laws into their hands.

He said investigation into the incident had since begun

“People should stop taking laws into their hands,” he said.

“If there is any suspicious person, people can arrest him and hand him over to the police for proper investigation and prosecution.”

According to NAN, the local vigilance group of the mosque saw the suspect making phone calls around the worship centre, about two hours to the commencement of prayers.

In November, 102 persons lost their lives and several others sustained injuries during multiple attacks at the central mosque.
