Grace Timothy, 29, a Nigerian nursing mother from northeastern Gombe State, has spent four months in jail with her one-year-old child for an alleged offence that has yet to be tried. She was arrested on 21 February in a church, after women from the minority Tangale tribe of Billiri Local Government Area held a peaceful protest over the ‘imposition’ of an ‘alien’  monarch by state authorities, locals say.

The Christian paramount chief of the Tangale people, Dr Abdu Buba Maisheru died on 11 January 2021 “under suspicious circumstances”, Daniel Maddo, spokesperson of the Tangale Community Development Association told journalists in Jos. In May 2020, state officials announced that Abdu had contracted Covid-19. All tests on his family members, staff and others who had had contact with him however came out negative, raising questions about the authenticity of his test result.  

When Abdu was readmitted to hospital supposedly for the treatment of a minor ailment his family believed he would be discharged at any moment. According to Daniel, the Tangale people’s spokesperson, “Rumours started spreading that the Mai Tangale would not return alive, and that Mallam Danladi Sanusi [the current ‘imposed’ monarch] will be the next Mai Tangale.”
