"Stone Kwankwaso": Police Quiz Kano Commissioner Over Inciting Comments
The Kano State Commissioner for Special Duties and a former State All Progressives Congress (PC), Chairman, Abdullahi Abbas has been interrogated by the police over his alleged inciting remarks against former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso.
Abbas had last week directed his supporters to stone, “Satan Kwankwaso whenever he enters Kano”.
Kwankwaso is reportedly planning to visit the city on January 30 in company of a large number of his followers, a move that has generated controversy.
Abbas' inciting statement was said to be responsible for Sunday's clash between supporters of Kwankwaso and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
The clash, which occurred close to the late Galadima Kano House, left six people injured, including a step brother of Abbas, Walid Abbas Sunusi (Walidiyya Kwankwaso) who is a staunch supporter Kwankwaso.
Kwankwaso and Ganduje, both of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have been at loggerheads since the latter assumed office.
However the State Police Spokesman, Musa Majiya, told journalists, Monday that Abbas and a complainant, MK Umar, were invited and have been interrogated over their reported comments.
Majiya said Abbas was released on bail after being interrogated but that, ”the seriousness of his remarks in still under investigation by the State CID department.”
The spokesperson also said the police have arrested some persons in connection with a clash between Gandujiya and Kwankwassiyya followers.
These include, Sani Abdullahi Abbas, Abbas Abdullahi Abbas and Nazify Shawiya.
He said they will be sent to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
