Pantami: ATBU lecturer counters Prof. Achi, says ‘your son was killed by student unionists’

A lecturer at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Bauchi, Associate Prof. Abdulsalam Ya’u-Gital has picked holes in Professor Samuel Achi’s claims that his son was killed by Muslim extremists at the prompting of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali-Pantami.

On Wednesday, Mr Achi had granted an interview to the SaharaReporters, alleging that his son, Sunday, was strangled to death inside the ATBU mosque where Mr Pantami was the Chief Imam.

“One thing I know that you people (media) got wrong was that my son was not stoned to death. He was strangled inside the mosque and they threw the corpse outside the university mosque,” Mr Achi told the newspaper.

But while speaking with DAILY NIGERIAN on Friday, Mr Ya’u-Gital dismissed Mr Achi’s claim, saying Mr Sunday was killed at a riot that broke out during Student Union election in 2004.

According to Mr Ya’u-Gital, who teaches at the Mathematical Sciences Department of the ATBU, the 400level student was not strangled inside the mosque where the then Mr. Pantami was an Imam.


The lecturer, who was a student of the university at the time, stressed that no such a thing would happen in any mosque in Bauchi without the Muslim community reporting the party involved.

“It has never happened and will never happen God’s willing.

“Anybody that was familiar with Nigerian tertiary institutions from 90s to early 2000s knew that student riots were commonplace, especially on matters that concerned student elections or their welfare.

“It was only unfortunate that the killing of Mr. Sunday, who was a victim of student riot, would be tagged as religious.

“During the incident, the hardworking and dedicated Nigerian Department of State Security Services came into the school, conducted their investigations and made so many arrests.

“If Dr. Pantami was involved; I believe the DSS would have dealt with him, as the DSS does not in any way play or joke with anything that claimed life of a citizen.

“To make it worse, Pantami was a common man like me then.

“So, are you telling me that the DSS doesn’t know what it is doing? Can you know better than the secret police?

“We should we be playing politics with anything involving the reputation of the agencies that protect us; it may look like an insult to the security agencies of this country in the eyes of the world.

“I want to urge Nigerians to read the writings on the wall because these whole things are coming around at this time to tarnish the image of the minister.

“I believe in the process of making positive changes in the country, and due to human nature, Dr. Pantami must have stepped on some toes that are now out on a revenge mission which forced them to think of an event that happened 16 years back when Dr. Pantami was nobody,” the professor added.

The scholar added that, “please, Nigerians should focus on developmental issues, issues that will bring positive changes for common citizens to smile in the country”.

From what u have seen so far, most of thee nontherners re very extreme people. Patani I s just one among millions, even buhari is kuke that. They will defend patani at all cost.



What I do not understand is the femi gbajabiamila iilking a bill to force patani out of office, I mean is femi a nontherner ?

Even some yoruba people here on nairaland busy defending patani.

.perhaps demi gbajabiamila or our very own helinues thinks shekau or femi will spare them when push comes to shove.


Apc is a terrorist organisation.

We be munu for South because if Pantami na Southerner , we for don roast am alive .

But look at how Pantami is being exonerated by his people with the same ideology.

It's a shame really, security agencies should be grilling this guy now but it won't happen to any of them .

Pantami is holding one of the sensitive positions in the country, remember that.

This one have been bought with something, trying to defend Islam, an extremist and a terrorist, no matter whatever he says Patanmi is a terrorist, the Sunday achi is simply a target because he was a leader of a Christian group in the school, how many people were killed, so in a riot in a Muslim populated school, it was Christian that was a victim of the framed riot.

Religious extremism is the reason behind the backwardness of the North. I don't see this behaviour changing overnight. The sad story is that, you become very popular and prominent in the North the moment you start demonstrating extreme hatred towards other religions and expressing wicked fanatical views. The North is a region for breeding terrorists in Nigeria. This cycle will not end!

This is one reason why the Ibos don't see themselves as part of this country. Other ethnic groups have realised this anomaly and are beginning to feel the same. The bitter truth is that it will be very difficult to reconcile every part of Nigeria, till Jesus comes. There are some many visible elements accounting for the weak bond amongst us. The depth of cracks is deep that it can never be mended.

Honestly, the way out is to break up along contiguous and natural boundaries. The late Gaddafi of Libya saw everything when he proposed two countries:Northern Nigeria and Southern Nigeria.
