A member-elect representing Dala Federal Constituency of Kano State on the platform of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, Aliyu Madaki, has been detained by the police for brandishing a gun during a rally.

Madaki honoured a police invitation on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, after his viral picture brandishing a pump action gun during a homecoming rally of the NNPP presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, surfaced online.

The State Police Spokesperson, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, who confirmed the development in a statement said Madaki is currently at the State CID undergoing an investigation.

Kiyawa said, “Today, 1st March 2023, the Kano State Police Command under the leadership of CP Muhammad Yakubu has invited Honourable Aliyu Sani Madaki, member-elect, Dala Federal Constituency for suspected unlawful possession of a firearm. He is currently at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Kano State Police Command undergoing an investigation.”

Recall that thugs had attacked the motorcade of Kwankwaso along Zaria Road, Kano on February 23, during the grand finale of his presidential campaign, and Mr Madaki allegedly led a crackdown against the thugs.

The incident led to the arrest of the ruling APC chairmen of Ungogo and Rimingado Local Government Areas of Kano State, Abdullahi Ramat and Munir Dahiru respectively with pistols by a joint security operatives.

Police later paraded 85 thugs arrested alongside the chairmen during the clash but set free the local government chairmen without filing charges against them.

Breaking: Arsenal suffer Thomas Partey injury worry ahead of crucial Leeds United clash

Published

on

Thomas Partey will fly back to Arsenal having missed Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola on Monday due to injury.

Ghana manager Chris Houghton confirmed Partey, who remained an unused substitute during the 1-1 draw, was deemed too much of a risk to play during his post-match press conference.

“Thomas has some small injury issues,” Houghton said. “We felt it was too big a risk to start him.”

Arsenal are expecting Partey back at London Colney on Tuesday where they will assess the midfielder, who was accompanied to Ghana by Gunners physio Simon Murphy, ahead of this weekend’s home game with Leeds.

The former Atletico Madrid star felt something in his right leg during a training session with his country on Sunday. Sources close to the player insist it is not a hamstring issue and believe he should be fine for Saturday’s game at Emirates Stadium.

Houghton is understood to have taken the decision to leave Partey out on his own. There was no outside pressure from Arsenal, despite the presence of Murphy.

The Gunners medical team will make a decision later in the week on whether the 29-year-old can feature against Leeds. Arsenal travel to Liverpool the following weekend for a huge game at Anfield as they chase their first Premier League title since 2004.

Should Partey miss out this Saturday, Jorginho would most likely be the man to come in and replace him in midfield.

An Ikeja High Court has sentenced a domestic staff, Joseph Ogbu, to death by hanging for killing his employer, an 89-year-old woman, Ajoke John and her daughter, Oreoluwa in Lagos State.

NAN reports that Justice Modupe Nicole-Clay held on Monday that the prosecution had sufficiently proven the 3-count charge bordering on murder and armed robbery against the convict.

Nicole-Clay held today that the defendant confessed to the crime as he self-confessed living with the deceased and he was the only witness of the incident.

Nicole-Clay said, “He killed Adejoke by strangling her and Oreoluwa by stabbing her to death as defence didn’t raise objection to the admissibility of the confessional statement, there’s no doubt that the defendant confessed to the crimes.

“The defendant couldn’t give an explanation as to what he was doing with all the stolen items he was found with at about 2 am on the date he was arrested.

“This court has found Joseph Ogbu guilty of these heinous crimes and you’re hereby sentenced to death by hanging. May God have mercy on your soul.”

The convict, while gesticulating, begged the court for mercy.

He said in pidgin English, “the mama no die for my presence. I beg for mercy.”
