Blogger Jamil Mabai Arrested For Criticising Governor Masari For Buying Coffins by Limitednow: 4:36pm On Sep 21, 2016
THE police in Katsina said yesterday that it arrested Blogger, Jamil Mabai for criticising the purchase of 3000 coffins for distribution to mosques by the state governor, Aminu Masari.



Mabai had criticised the rationale behind the purchase of 3000 coffins at N40,000 each when the governor is yet to pay outstanding salary to civil servants in the State.


He wondered whether the governor wants the people of the State to die with the purchase of the coffins.


Justifying his arrest, the Commissioner of Police, Katsina State, Usman Abdulahi said the blogger was detained for posting that the government bought the coffins because it wanted people to die.


He said: “The state government complained that Jamil wrote that it had bought 3,000 coffins and distributed to mosques and may be it wanted Katsina people to die.


“Any reasonable person will ask one or two questions. This is why we had to invite him to assist the police.”

This is coming barely two weeks after Emenike Iroegbu who publishes Abia Facts Newspapers was arrested over offences bordering on “defamation”.

”He recently published an article saying the governor buried a 9-year-old in the Government House in Umuahia,” Abia State Government said.

Within the past one year, Nigeria has witnessed an upsurge in arrests of citizens over their activities on the Internet.

In August 2015, three bloggers —Demond Ike, Seun Oloketuyi and Chris Nwandu— were arrested and charged for offences that allegedly contravened Cybercrime Act in Lagos.

Mr. Ike spent six months in custody, parts of which were in Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison.

A month later, Emmanuel Ojo, was arrested in Abeokuta allegedly on the orders of Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun, after posting some “offensive” materials on Facebook. The charges preferred against him remained stalled in the Abeokuta Division of the Federal High Court.

Mr. Ojo said he had since fled Nigeria to another West African country after “threats from powerful people became unbearable.”

On August 8, 2016, Abubakar Usman, a pro-government blogger, was also arrested and detained for nearly two days for apparently publishing a report critical of the head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.

God forbid evil in the land and stupid policemen. Are they not supposed to go and query d governor for expending public money on the most useless of things in the face of biting hardship worsened by unpaid salaries? They rather arrest one that has asked an obvious question! So Nigerians can no longer question questionable decisions of their leaders particularly those executed with public funds? One chance na him una enter with this change o! Hmmm!

Do the maths....40 000 x 3000 = 120,000,000
And somebody in Abuja doesn't think that is 'kwaraption'
Treasury looting is what I call it

And I must say, how did each of those metals cost 40k? It takes an average of just 10k to make each of those things I can see in the pic.

Nigeria's problems is not about APC OR PDP, it is people like this and many others who through selfishness want to steal so much money, thinking that's the guarantee to a better future for they and their generations unborn

The Police claim that they want him to assist them in answering some questions,lol. Who will help us to ask the Governor what the coffins are for. People will not be intimidated by these arrests. The people will continue to use the social media to vent their anger, there is nothing they can do about it . On the other hand, I Don't support Falsehood, though. #40,000 for that thing wey roadside welder no go collect reach half of that amount

Just when you think you 've heard it all.
you hear say person dey give out 3000 coffins as gift.
I guess to relieve her citizen of this recession.
I need to check the meaning of coffin again.

" a long, narrow box, typically of wood, in which
a dead body is buried or cremated."

Those people sef collect am.
Customer dada ni oo.
the police should question the government or the beneficiaries, Abeg leave this out of this dance of shame.
