Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Bauchi State branch, Barrister Mahmud Mohammed Maidoki has urged the Nigerian police to tackle extra-judicial killings by an outlawed outfit known as ‘Ba beli ‘.

He made the call in Bauchi Thursday during the inauguration of the newly elected officials of Young Lawyers Forum, an affiliate body in the Association.

He lamented that the group has been extra-judicially executing supposed criminals in communities across the state.

Maidoki noted that the group’s activities were not only illegal but worrisome because they allegedly kill innocent people instead of taking them to the police for further prosecution.

” My lords, I want to register our utmost dismay on the attitude of the Nigerian Police in handling the emerging militia most particularly called ‘Yan Ba Beli ‘ meaning literally a group of illegal frontiers instant adjudication of supposed crimes which usually execute innocent people devoid of the notion of fair hearing ‘. He said.
