Police cadet allegedly die of starvation at Academy in Kano state

Tragedy struck the Nigeria Police Academy in Wudil, Kano State, on a fateful Saturday, claiming the life of a promising A100-level police cadet, A.S. Jika. The young cadet, hailing from Adamawa State and enrolled in the Department of Computer Science, met an untimely demise reportedly due to weeks of continuous starvation and malnourishment.

Accusations have been leveled against the academy’s Commandant, Assistant Inspector-General Sadiq Abubakar, who stands accused of high-handedness and financial mismanagement concerning the feeding allowances allocated to the cadets. According to sources within the academy, Jika collapsed in the early hours of that fateful Saturday within the academy premises, specifically inside a restroom.

An anonymous cadet disclosed that Jika was rushed to the academy’s clinic, only to be left untreated due to a lack of essential medical supplies and medical personnel. The cadet lamented the dire conditions within the clinic, citing the continuous influx of sickly cadets.

The situation within the academy appears to be dire, with cadets alleging inadequate and subpar food provisions since the new commandant took office. The tragic loss of Jika, who was not yet 20 years old, has further ignited concerns regarding the academy’s policies. Cadets often find themselves pushed to their limits, collapsing during training due to fatigue stemming from starvation and malnourishment. Reports suggest that unwarranted training exercises are imposed, and the closure of essential facilities like the market and laundry exacerbates the cadets’ hardships.

Allegations of financial impropriety surround the academy, as staff members have voiced their concerns about the monthly feeding allowance. Insider sources have indicated that a portion of these funds ends up in the pockets of high-ranking officials.

Despite attempts to contact the Commandant, AIG Abubakar, for comment on the tragic incident and the allegations against him, he remained unresponsive to phone calls and text messages. As investigations unfold, the circumstances surrounding A.S. Jika’s death cast a grim spotlight on the challenges faced by cadets at the Nigeria Police Academy and raise pressing questions about the institution’s management and treatment of its students.
