Elections: Police summon APC Reps member over Kano violence
The police in Kano on Friday summoned a member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin, over his alleged role in a bloody clash between members of the PDP and APC in Bebeji Local Government Area.
It was earlier reported that two people were killed in the violence.
Jibrin is seeking reelection under the governing APC in the state. He was the lawmaker who exposed the budget ‘padding scandal’ in the House of Representatives that led to his suspension for over one year by the House.
The Kano police spokesperson, Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed to newsmen that the lawmaker, who represents Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency had been invited ”for clarification”.
The spokesman also said the police went to the scene of the clash and arrested many suspects.
He said about 50 other persons are currently in police net.
