Conspiracy against Abacha: Tension as 2 PDP Leaders land in Police net in powerful Northern state

Kano, Kano – Two leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have been charged to court by the criminal investigation department of the Nigeria police, AIG Zone 1 Kano, for alleged perjury and conspiracy against Muhammad Sani Abacha regarding his membership of the party.

According to Vanguard, the 2 PDP leaders are the chairman of Fagge local government and secretary of the PDP, Muhammad Auwal and Umar Alhassan.

Why PDP leaders are in court?

In a first information report (FIR) the police forwarded before a federal high court in Kano while arraigning the 2 party leaders in the local government, a letter of criminal complaints was submitted to the Inspector General of Police in Abuja, and then forwarded to the zone 1 Kano.

The letter was reportedly written by one RO Atabo SAN of RO Atabo and Co Liberty Chambers on behalf of his client, Muhammad Sani Abacha, alleging that the two persons were found to have committed perjury and criminal conspiracy.

FIR maintained that police investigation revealed that about 6 months ago, before the gubernatorial primary of the PDP in the state, Muhammad Abacha was issued a PDP membership card of his ward at Fagge B in Fagge LGA of Kano state by the Ward chairman and secretary.

Thus, the issuance of the membership card to Abacha validated his membership in the party in Fagge ‘B’ in the Fagge LGA of Kano state.
