“A 100-level course 9 Police Cadet, A.S. Jika, dropped dead at the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano State, on Saturday, after complaints of being continuously starved and malnourished for over two weeks.

“Some of the cadets accused the Commandant, Assistant Inspector-General, Sadiq Abubakar, of high-handedness and financial mismanagement of feeding allowance meant for the students,” according to the Twitter handle.

Another cadet spoke anonymously and, said, “Since the new commandant assumed office, they’ve been providing very bad and inadequate food for us.

“The boy that died was not up to 20 years old. The boy wouldn’t have died if they’d attended to him. The commandant also ordered the closure of the market and laundry and approved undeserved training exercises during lecture hours”.
