Shehu Sani Honours Police Invitation
Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central, has revealed that he was invited by the police in Kaduna earlier on Monday morning. The Senator stated that he honoured the invite, wrote a statement, and was later allowed to go, based on self recognition.
The senator made this known on his verified Twitter handle, where he wrote:
“The Police invited me to appear today by 10:45am. I honored the invitation to the Police Headquarters in Kaduna by 10:45am, with clear conscience. I wrote my statements. I was granted ‘self bail’. I have left.”
As earlier reported by Naija News, the senator had been written by the Kaduna State Police Command, earlier in the month, asking him to appear at the command headquarters after identifying him as a person of interest in a murder case.
Mr. Austin Iwar, the state Commissioner of Police, who wrote the letter, asked Sani to appear before the Police on April 30.
The letter, with reference number, CR: 2000/KDS/VOL 5H/72, was said to have been routed through the Clerk of the National Assembly, while the Senate President was also copied.
“This is in connection with a case of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide transferred to this office by 1 Division, Nigerian Army, Kaduna, alongside with exhibit audio CD, in which your name was mentioned by the principal suspect,” Iwar said in the letter .
A murder suspect, Isa Garba, who was arrested by the military, was alleged to have implicated the federal lawmaker after he was transferred to the police.
It was gathered that Sani’s name was mentioned when the suspect, who allegedly participated in the killing of one Lawal Madugu, implicated another person identified as Bashir Hamdada.
Iwar, while responding to a query on the letter, said the case was not politically-motivated.
