Governor of Kano State, Abba Kabir Yusuf (Abba Gida-Gida) has expressed strong determination to revisit all cases of electoral violence and murder allegation against Alhassan Ado Doguwa, Majority Leader of the House of Representatives. He also vowed to rescue popular social media icon Abubakar Dadiyata who was declared missing three years ago.
In addition , the governor stated that all lawsuits closed down by the outgone administration of Abdullahi Ganduje will be reviewed.
“Earlier, in my inaugural address, I stated that we cannot forget the case of our respected member and supporter, Abubakar Dadiyata, who was whisked away in broad daylight by unknown elements more than three years ago,” he said.
“The Kano State Government will take up his case with all relevant security agencies in the country so as to rescue him and bring those responsible to justice. – AKY,” he wrote on his Twitter handle.
Earlier, Daily Trust had quoted Abba saying his administration would review the electoral offences and other matters swept under the carpet during his predecessor’s eight years in power.
“We shall investigate all cases of political violence that led to loss of lives and properties across the state in the last eight years,” he said.
“The infamous case of Alhassan Ado Doguwa, who allegedly sponsored the maiming and murder of over 15 innocent souls in Tudun Wada Local Government will be pursued to its logical conclusion,” he added.
The governor continued: “The numerous victims of the Ganduje campaign of violence, using thugs that were being intoxicated with drugs will not be left unchecked.
“In order to prevent future occurrence, a judicial Commission of Inquiry will be put in place to ensure that the perpetrators and their sponsors are brought to justice and the families of the victims of political thuggery are also entitle to justice.”
WikkiTimes had earlier reported that the immediate past administration of Kano State through its Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice Musa Lawan dropped all murder charges levelled against Doguwa for what it described as “lack of substantive evidences.”
