Senator Shehu Sani has declared his intention to contest for the Kaduna state governorship election. The Senator representing Kaduna central made his intention known on Thursday, April 12, when accusing the Kaduna state governor, Nasir El Rufai, of conspiring with the Nigerian police in an attempt to blackmail him.
In a Facebook post written in Hausa but translated by NAIJ.com to English, the lawmaker alleged that he had received a report about conspiracy being cooked by the Kaduna state governor against him and insisted that the conspiracy will fail.
ani asked Nasiru El-Rufa’I to prepare to pack out of the government house. The lawmaker alleged that the autocratic government oppressing the poor people of Kaduna state has come to an end.
It has been earlier reported that the Kaduna state police command named Senator Shehu Sani as a person of interest in an ongoing investigation relating to a case of criminal conspiracy and culpable murder.
The police commissioner in the state, Austin Iwar, has asked the senator to appear on April 30 at the command headquarters in Kaduna for questioning over the issue.
Iwar said the invite is to enable the police fairly and timely conclude investigation into the matter. The letter from the police was reportedly delivered to the senator through the clerk of the National Assembly, while copy of the letter was also forwarded to Senate President Bukola Saraki. The police commissioner has insisted that the case against the senator was not politically motivated. Naij.com
