Nine Missing Bauchi Bikers Found In Military Detention In Jos

Nine commercial motorcyclists, also referred to as “Yan Achaba,” who were reported missing while traveling from the Kirfi local government area in Bauchi state to the Lafia local government area in Nasarawa state, have been found in Jos, the capital of Plateau state.

They were reportedly detained by the military in Jos.

There was a reported falling out between the parents of the missing youths, who were headed to Lafia for their Bike taxi business before losing contact with friends and relatives last Saturday.

According to him, the young men were taken into custody by the military task team Operation Safe Haven and held for four days without any evidence of their guilt being discovered.

The chairman said: “We made several efforts at various Police formations in Bauchi, Plateau, and Nasarawa states searching for their whereabouts but were successful. It was the joint task force that arrested them and put them under severe torture without any justification for four days. If you see how terrified them you will sympathize with them.”

“What happened to the young men is disheartening, especially the action of the task force because we are not happy with the ugly incident. The young men were really terrorized and it’s unfortunate that security agents would conduct themselves in such an unprofessional act on innocent civilians.

“I don’t even know how to describe the action of the task force. I believe it is the efforts of journalists and other people who publicize their story that really help the situation, if not because of wider publicity, I doubt much about their discovery and subsequent release.”
