Court remands House of Reps Majority leader, Doguwa over alleged murder

The Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Kano has ordered the remand of the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Doguwa, at a correctional facility over charges of culpable homicide and arson.

According to a report, Alhassan Doguwa was taken before Court 58 of the Magistrate’s Court in Nomansland area of the state metropolis Wednesday evening, after his arrest at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport on Tuesday.

The magistrate, Ibrahim Yola, ordered the remand of Doguwa after the First Information Report was read. He thereafter adjourned the matter to March 7.

The Informant247 gathered that the Kano State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Haruna Kiyawa, said Doguwa was arrested in connection with a suspected case of criminal conspiracy, culpable homicide, causing grievous hurt, mischief by fire and inciting disturbance.

Kiyawa said that the arrest followed complaints “received on the gruesome murder of three persons, causing grievous injury to eight others in Tudun Wada LGA on 26/02/2023 while the collation of election results was ongoing and an alleged viral video of some victims with suspected gunshots in the Social Media.”

Kiyawa said Doguwa was arrested because he refused to honour an invitation extended to him by the police.

“He was subsequently arrested by detectives from the State Criminal Investigation Department Bompai Kano at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano,” the PPRO said.
