A woman who claims to have witnessed the Ejura attack on social media activist Macho Kaaka on June 27, has opened up in a media interview.
She claims she saw Mohammed Baba Iddi, a brother of Kaaka attacking, the late Kaaka on the night of the incident.
Speaking to the media in Ejura, she said she saw Baba Iddi pulling Kaaka’s body after the attack.
She has since given a statement to the police.
According to her, on that day, she heard a noise outside whilst preparing for dawn prayers (Salah).
When she heard the noise, she initially thought Kaaka was trying to clear goats from the compound, and on second thought, she heard him breathing profusely.
So she moved outside to check what was happening and saw Baba Iddi, Kaaka’s brother trying to pull him into a dark area, she claimed.
According to her, she rushed to knock on Kaaka’s wife’s door for her to come witness the incident and Baba Iddi left Kaaka and went outside.
She claimed Baba Iddi bumped into her [the witness’] sister who was outside whilst going out of the house.
She said her husband had travelled outside of Ejura at the time of the incident and therefore she opted to wait till the husband arrived before going public with what she witnessed.
She said she rather told the husband what she witnessed and they decided to inform the police about what she had witnessed later on.
She said it was based on her witness statement that the police arrested Baba Iddi.
