The House of Representatives Minority leader, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, has been sent to prison over allegation of murder.
Recall that in December last year, Doguwa threatened to deal with those who would not vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the general election.
Yesterday, February 28, ThePrint Nigeria reports that the Nigeria Police Force arrested him over alleged involvement in the killing of several persons and burning of the Secretariat of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the just concluded general election.
He was alleged to have used the pistol of his orderly and fired at several persons.
Doguwa was arraigned before a magistrate’s court in Kano for culpable homicide, conspiracy, mischief, unlawful possession of firearms and inciting disturbance.
Others charged at large are Nazifi Asnanic, Nafiu Musa, Hamisu Amadu and Abdulhadi Alaramma.
“That Alhassan Doguwa was charged with burning a building that resulted to the burning of Alasan Mohammed and Aminu Malam Amadu to death, while Bashir Yani, Labaran Sule and one Amadu injured by the fire,” one of the charges read in part.
