Kano State Police says it has commenced an investigation into the physical assault on a Leadership correspondent, Abdullahi Yakubu by a majority leader of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Ado Doguwa.
Doguwa who is representing Tudunwada/Doguwa Federal constituency, had called a press conference on Monday to clarify a rift between him and the deputy gubernatorial candidate under the All Progressive Congress (APC) Alhaji Murtala Sule Garo. It was during the press briefing that the former pounced on the journalist.
Some weeks earlier, the journalist was also brutalised by Murtala who slapped him when he attempted to intervene by giving an advice.
Abubakar Zayyanu Ambursa, the spokesman for the zone 1 Nigeria Police Force in Kano, confirmed that the police received the order from the Gyadi-Gyadi Magistrate’s Court in Kano that the Deputy Inspector General of Police ordered for a thorough investigation into the matter.
He said the results of the investigation will be submitted to the court.
