Police Arrest Kano Deputy Governor for Disrupting Proceedings at INEC Collation Center

Kano state police has arrested the deputy governor, Nasir Gawuna, commissioner in charge of Local government and chieftaincy affairs, Sule Garo,  for causing harvoc at the State collation centre of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to Premium Times: The two top officials were arrested some minutes after 2 a.m. Monday after they arrived the venue of the state collation centre and began to disrupt the process.

Their actions led to a halt in the announcement of results at the centre after some youth suspected to be supporters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) tried to attack the two officials.

The police are expected to later release Mr Gawuna without charges as he enjoys constitutional immunity from prosecution based on the office he holds.

As at the time of their arrest, results from 43 of Kano’s 44 local governments had been announced and the PDP candidate, Abba Yusuf, was leading the incumbent Abdullahi Ganduje of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
