Election: Police arrest Kano Deputy Governor over unruly behaviour during collation
Operatives of the Kano state Police command have arrested the state deputy governor, Nasir Gawuna and the commissioner in charge of Local government and chieftaincy affairs, Sule Garo, for disrupting proceedings at the Kano State collation centre of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The two top government officials had stormed the collation center at about 2am this morning and began to disrupt the process. Their actions led to a halt in the announcement of results at the centre after some youth suspected to be supporters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) tried to attack the two officials.
The police are expected to later release Mr Gawuna without charges as he enjoys constitutional immunity from prosecution based on the office he holds.
