This is Abdulmalik Kabir Yaro, a wonderful
son of my friend from childhood. Abdulmalik
lost his younger brother to leukemia about
4 weeks ago. This morning he’s dead, killed
(read, executed) by a local gang.
Abdulmalik’s offense which earned him
death sentence in the court of this gang
was his effort to stop the wayward gang
from seeing his young sister who’s hardly
the age of courtship.

The gang somehow cornered Abdulmalik
and beat him up to pulp yesterday. He was
rushed to the hospital in coma and gave up
the ghost today around 11 am. This is not
in Katsina, Kano, Lagos or Port Harcourt,
this happened in the heart of Malumfashi,
my sweet serene hometown. I’m
That the victim was my son while my
hometown was the theatre of this ungodly
violence, made it even more disturbing.
That it’s another crime induced by passion
and possibly drugs when Nigeria is debating
yesterday’s callous murder of a young man
by his wife in a case of domestic violence
made it even more tragic and cause for

Where are we heading? Why is murder
becoming a cheap option for conflict
resolution among the youth? What’s missing
in the system that people don’t seem
afraid to commit grievous offenses that
hitherto, were seen only in western movies?
We are slowly inching towards a lawless
society for lack of political will to
implement punitive laws scripted for our
country to curtail and control criminality.
Most laws in Nigeria are mere decoration
on dusty shelves in courtrooms; made
ineffective by a cumbersome judicial
system. I’m sure the murderers of
Abdulmalik would have had a second
thought before his murder had they
watched a convicted murderer hanged to
death for the offense. Sadly, all they have
to stimulate their respect for the law were
countless stories of murderers getting
away with murders due to a mixture of
clumsiness and cunningness of our judicial

It’s sad that a cry for justice in Nigeria is a
cry that only the victim could hear. Our
courts are more like a sanctuary for
criminals than for their victims. With
money, one could get away with almost any
crime imaginable under the sun. Good cases
were lost to judicial technicalities that have
no relevance to the facts of the case. Only
in Nigeria would a criminal like Evans who
made billions in ransom from his kidnapped
victims (some of whom were killed by him
anyway) would battle the court to enforce
his “human right”. It should make sense
that people are resorting to improvised
laws to deal with criminality.
Thanks to the inefficacy of our justice
system, individual communities have
designed laws that are already being
implemented in full to dispense speedy
justice. Thieves of all grades and
categories are roasted by the roadside to
circumvent the cumbersomeness of our
justice system in most states in the
Southern part of the country. It’s only a
matter of time before other parts of the
country borrow and tailor the system to
suit their needs. The only antidote for such
likely crisis is a wholistic review of the
justice system to make more compliant
and user friendly.

My heartfelt condolence to the parents of
Abdulmalik for the tragic lost of another
promising son when yet to overcome the
pain of an earlier bereavement. Allah ya
jikanshi da rahama.
