The Kano State Police command has invited the newly-appointed state Commissioner for Special Duties, Abdullahi Abbas, over an alleged inciting remark against a former governor of the state, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

In a viral video, Mr Abbas, a Kano prince, was heard asking party supporters to stone “political devil”, in apparent reference to Mr Kwankwaso’s planned visit to the state on January 30.

Speaking to journalists, on Monday, the spokesman of the command, Magaji Majiya, also said two sons of the commissioner, and his houseboy, were arrested over alleged attack on Mr Kwankwaso’s supporters.

According to Mr Majiya, the commissioner was invited on Monday after the command received a complaint from one MK Umar and Co. that Mr Abbas be investigated over what they described as an attempt to throw the state into chaos.

He added that the embattled commissioner, a former factional chairman of the state’s chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, had been released on self-recognition bail, while waiting for the complainants to tender the video where he made the alleged statement.

The spokesman further said the sons and house boy of the commissioner, Sani Abdullahi, Abbas Abdullahi and Nazifi Shawuya respectively, had been arrested over alleged attack on Kwankwasiyya faction during a wedding on Sunday.

He said “we received a complaint that the suspects attacked three of the Kwankwasiyya supporters during a wedding.  We rushed them to hospital and they were all treated.

“We then arrested the suspects, while investigation is ongoing. If they are found guilty, they will be charged to court.”

Mr Majiya also warned against dragging the name of the state’s Police Command into politics, stressing that the command always ensures justice for all for peace to reign in the state.

The governor of the state, Abdullahi  Ganduje and Kwankwaso — two former long-time political associates — have been at loggerheads since the former assumed the power. (Daily Nigerian)
