Muhammad made the accusation while presenting a paper at the Kano Youth Summit on Peace Advocacy and Development, organised by Hamisu Magaji Foundation, at Mambayya House, on Monday.
Dr. Mohammed also blamed court judges for compromise to secure the release of the suspects without trial, noting that it was the reason the problem was deteriorating.
