The embattled Kano State commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Murtala Sule Garo, who doubles as the secretary of the Ganduje Campaign Organisation, has accused the state police commissioner, Wakili Muhammad, of being unfair to the state chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC)
He alleged that Wakili was selective in his actions, adding that “we are not going to take it again because he has not been fair to us.”
In an interaction with newsmen yesterday in Kano on his recent detention by the police command for disrupting the collation of the March 9, 2019 governorship election result in Nasarawa local government area, Garo said that the police commissioner wrongly arrested the deputy governor and later claimed that they saved him from mob action.
Garo said: “If he (Wakili) claimed he did not arrest the deputy governor how come that he was placed behind the counter at the police headquarters?”
He said that he heard news of some hoodlums trying to disrupt the collation of results at the Nasarawa Collation Centre, the night preceding the governorship election and called the deputy governor, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, because it is his local government, and the council chairman, Lamin Sani and they went to see what was happening at the centre.
The commissioner said that it was the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that disrupted the exercise by tearing the result sheet, which, he said was confirmed to INEC by the returning officer in the area.
The commissioner explained that they were harassed by PDP hoodlums even at the police headquarters but nothing was done to stop them,
“We are calling on the Kano State police commissioner to be fair to our people because we will not fold our arms and see him accusing and becoming selective,” Garo said.
