The gubernatorial candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf (Abba Gida Gida) has sought immediate prosecution of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman in the state, Abdullahi Abbas.

Abba Gida Gida in a suit with case number FHC/KN/CS/02/2023 filed by his counsel Barr. Bashir Yusuf Muhammad Tudunwazirchi requested the high court to as a matter of urgency compel the Kano State Police Commissioner to investigate and prosecute the Kano APC Chairman over his unguarded utterances that have been creating political violence in the state.

A statement signed by Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, the spokesperson to Abba Gida Gida revealed that NNPP gubernatorial candidate approached the court with a view to awakening the Police to do the needful.

“We have written several complaints with overwhelming evidence on the numerous atrocities of the state chairman of APC, but to date, the Police authority in Kano has not acted on any of them.

“In recent times, several attacks and political violence were orchestrated by Abdullahi Abbas, his son Sani Abdullahi Abbas and his closed associates where innocent individuals were maimed, injured and intimidated but yet, the police keep mum on the issue despite written complaints submitted before them.”

The order of mandamus if granted would force the Kano Police Command to discharge its constitutional responsibility and act accordingly on the formal complaint written against the state APC Chairman, Abdullahi Abbas for hate speeches, criminal intimidation, and promoting political thuggery that fueled violence in the state.

According to Dawakin Tofa, the APC Chairman would also be investigated for the recent allegation of the killing he made in a press conference.

“As the 2023 elections are fast approaching, we want to play our role in ensuring a peaceful atmosphere for all Kano citizens and residents to exercise their civic rights,” Dawakin Tofa added.
