February 03, (THEWILL) – The Kano State Police Command, said it had arrested dozens of thugs allegedly hired to disrupt the re-run election held in some parts of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Usaini Gumel, who disclosed this while speaking with newsmen, said the thugs were arrested in possession of arms and were allegedly hired by a politician contesting in the election.

Gumel said the thugs were arrested around the Kunchi/Tsanyawa area, one of the constituencies in Kano State where the re-run election took place.

“We saw a truck that was faulty by the roadside. We also saw people in large numbers by the roadside. At first, they gave us the impression that it was the fuel of the vehicle that was finished. But upon close observation, we saw them in possession of arms.

“One Abdulrazaq Muhammad a.k.a. Mai Salati, from Kano Municipal, told us that one Gwarmai who is contesting in the area invited them over.

“We will get the Gwarmai to know if he is truly a candidate contesting and why he invited them to the area.

“We suspect they were in the bush to ambush on the electoral officers while on their way with the election results”, the commissioner added.
