Police declare former Kano commissioner wanted for electoral crimes

Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

The police in Kano, on Tuesday, declared Musa Kwankwaso, a former commissioner in the government of Ibrahim Shekarau, wanted.

Mr. Kwankwaso is wanted alongside four others who were accused of several offences during Saturday’s gubernatorial elections, the police said.

The police Commissioner, Ibrahim Idris, said 18 people were involved in stealing election materials, burning them as well as carrying weapons.

He told journalists that 14 out of the 18 were arrested and the suspects disclosed that they were sponsored by Mr. Kwankwaso.

Mr. Idris said when the men of the SCID stormed Mr. Kwankwaso’s house to arrest him, he escaped over his fence.

When PREMIUM TIMES contacted Mr. Kwankwaso, he denied knowledge of any crime or a warrant for his arrest.

He said he was still moving around freely without any trouble.

    To declare this man wanted, he must have worked against APC. A lot of irregularities were committed by APC in the North during the elections which were never reported. Even the lily-livered foreign observers who refused to go to the North concentrated their watch where the odds do not favour APC. Yet, they declare that the election was free and fair across the country. Nonsense.

      Kano no be Akwa ibom, there may hitches in kano elections but you cannot compare it with the absolute rubi.h perpetrated in Akwa ibom.

    • Saydo Shan

    • Bishop

      They are two different people, Rabiu Musa is the government while Musa is the former commissioner ! The press mixed it !

  • amazing2012

  • Malam Almajiri

    They are two different people from Kwankwaso village in Madobi LGA, they are family related but politically opponents. The governor is Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso while the commissioner is Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso.
