News on Wednesday night filtered in of an alleged assault on the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission’s suspended Chairman, Muhuyi Rimin-Gado, by the commission’s operatives.

Two men from the agency were said to have stormed Rimin-Gado’s house in Sharada around 6.30pm in a tinted car, saying they had come to arrest him.

A source said the operatives, who were without a warrant of arrest, insisted that they were at the house of Rimin-Gado on the orders of the acting Chairman, Balarabe Mahmud, to bring him (Rimin-Gado) to the commission.

According to the source, a police inspector, identified as Aminu, tore the victim’s clothes while dragging the suspended chairman, as his neighbours overpowered the officer, who was later handed over to the police.

However, in response to the incident, Rimin-Gado stated that it was attempted kidnapping because the said commission operative did not have any identification to show that he was from the agency.

“There is even an existing court order that restrains the commission from arresting me,” Rimin-Gado added.

The acting Chairman of the agency, Balarabe, denied the allegation of assault.

He said, “You see, when the operative was at his residence and after introducing himself as a police officer, Rimin-Gado told him to leave his premises and threatened to shoot him. He later shot the tyres of the car of the police officer.”
