There is an ongoing protest in a community in Kano over the alleged torture to death of a 17-year-old boy by police officers in the state.
According to reports, the boy identified as Saifullahi of Kofar Mata quarters was arrested two days ago by the police while he was sleeping at his family house.
It was gathered that despite protests by the people of the community that he was never known for any criminal tendencies, he remained in police custody where he allegedly gave up the ghost.
It was also reported that Saifullahi had been released on bail only for the police to re-arrest and detain him again, where he was allegedly tortured to death.
The corpse of the suspect was brought to the family house by the police on Monday morning.
This development angered the people to take to the streets and they started making bonfires in protests.
