According to a sad news that was published yesterday, it was made known that the founder of Hausa Christian Foundation, Reverend Yohanna Shuaibu has been brutally murdered in Massu Village, a village in Sumaila Local Government Area of Kano State.

Information given concerning the untimely death of the pastor made it known that, some days ago, a moslem man gave his life to Christ, as the reverend was the one who converted him and some days after the new convert became a christian, he got engaged in an argument with his brother's wife and during the fracas, he killed her in the process, as the suspect later handed himself over to police operatives.

However, irate mob in the community were not satisfied with the incident and due to that, they went after the man of God, slaughtered him, burnt down his church, house and missionary school, as his family members, which comprises of his wife and three children, were able to escape from the attack.

Taking a look at this sad occurrence, one can categorically conclude that Reverend Yohanna Shuaibu, was killed for no reason because, he was killed for the offence that was committed by another person and besides, since the suspect already handed himself over to police operatives, was the reverend supposed to be attacked again ? Definitely 'No'

In my own opinion, the state government or the federal government should compensate the wife of the deceased because, there is possiblity that the house that was burnt down was her husband's only house and also, there is also possibility that the missionary school that was burnt down might be the only source of their income and now that they do not have them anymore, Reverend Yohanna Shuaibu's wife might find it difficult taking care of herself and her three children and also, she might be squatting with people presently for survival.

Also, in order for the reverend and his family members to get justice for his untimely and brutal death, the Attorney General of the Federation and the Nigeria's Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami should intervene in the matter by ordering police operatives to investigate it and arrest anyone involved in the death of the deceased.
