A 19-year-old awaiting trial inmate of the Katsina Prison, Isah Ibrahim, has died of drug-resistant tuberculosis, Punch reports.

Ibrahim of Unguwar Liman in Sabuwa Local Government Area of Katsina State and one Sanusi Abash of Wurma village in Kurfi Local Government Area of the state were previously arraigned before a Katsina Senior Magistrates’ Court for criminal conspiracy and armed robbery.

They were alleged to have violently snatched a motorcycle from the owner along the Gazari/Katsalle feeder road.

They were subsequently arraigned “on cognizance” before the magistrates’ court for the offence, which contravenes Section 6B and 1(2) (a) (b) of the Robbery and Firearms Special Provision Act, Cap R 11, 2004, LFN.

They were subsequently remanded in the prison custody until their case would come up for mention before the court.

Ibrahim was said to have died at the General Hospital, Katsina, on October 10, 2018, where he was rushed to by the prison authorities.

News of his death was officially communicated to the court, which consequently struck out his name from the police First Information Report on the case.

A top prison official, who pleaded anonymity for fear of retribution said, “Ibrahim died at the General Hospital on October 10, 2018, while a corona’s report on his death has already been made available to the court.”
