Police Arrests Newly-Elected Lawmaker For Alleged Unlawful Possession Of Firearms



A newly elected lawmaker representing Dala Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Sani Madakin Gini, has been arrested by the police on Wednesday for unlawful possession of firearms.

The spokesman for the state police command, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, who confirmed the arrest of the lawmaker in a statement, said the case is currently under investigation.

He said: “We can confirm that Hon. Sani Madakin Gini has been arrested for unlawful possession of firearms. He is currently in our custody and undergoing investigation.

“The police will not relent in its effort at ensuring that the law is upheld and everyone, irrespective of their status or position, is held accountable for their actions.”

Gini, a member of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), was elected into the National Assembly last Saturday.

He was arrested just 24 hours after the police picked up the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, for alleged violence.

Doguwa was arraigned on a five-count charge of culpable homicide, criminal conspiracy, causing grievous hurt, mischief by fire, and inciting public disturbances at the Kano State Magistrate Court on Wednesday.
