Member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin has been arrested over his involvement in a preelection violence on Thursday.
The convoy of Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso was attacked by hoodlums allegedly operating on the instructions of the Kano Central APC Representative and candidate.
Abubakar Adamu, Inspector General of Police while speaking at a media briefing in Abuja confirmed that Jibrin was arrested in connection with the convoy attack.
“In Kano, we all know there was a problem in Kano. Two people were killed and the vehicles were burnt down because of a clash between party supporters.
“And police had to move in, make arrest of people committing this crime on the scene. And in the course of making arrests, one of the suspects happens to be a candidate in the election.
“Do we leave him because he is a candidate? I think he should defend himself. That is why he was arrested. This is a country that obeys the rule of law.”
