Nigeria's HOR Majority Leader Ado Doguwa Slammed With Murder Charge

Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, has been arrested by the police for his alleged role in the killing of several persons and burning of the secretariat of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) during the just concluded poll.

The police had confirmed that at least three persons were killed when the campaign secretariat of the NNPP in Tudunwada was set ablaze.

Two persons were burnt to death during the crisis that broke out during the collation of the results of Doguwa/Tudunwada House of Representatives election, which Doguwa was eventually declared to have won.

A credible source in the police formation told our correspondent that Doguwa was picked up at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport while about boarding a flight to Abuja.

The source said that the report from the police leadership in Tudunwada stated that Doguwa personally led the thugs that set ablaze the NNPP secretariat where at least two persons were burnt to death.

“He also used the pistol of his orderly and fired and several persons. So we have arrested him in connection to murder and arson.”

“He is currently cooling off in the state Criminal Investigation Department,” the source, who is very familiar with the investigation and asked not to be named, said.

The spokesman of the Kano Police Command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, did not respond to call to his number.
Earlier, Doguwa had in a press briefing with journalists denied any culpability and said he learnt that the police were looking for him but he had not received any formal invitation.
He also denied allegations that he shot at several individuals in the fracas that broke out, saying he does not own a gun neither does he know how to fire one.

“I never held a gun. I don’t even know how to hold a gun. I also never held any weapon throughout the election,” he said.

He, however, said the crisis started when NNPP supporters came with the mindset of burning the INEC office and were repelled by supporters of APC.

Doguwa was elected for his 5th term on Saturday.

  1. You that make the law can't even obey the law
    Why take law into your own hands.

  2. Politicians for Naija don dey become Egungun be careful, no one is above the law

    1. Nay, some people are above the law in Nigeria. Na who no get godfather or long legs the law dey catch

  3. 5th term? E no wan retire kpatakpata.

  4. He killed someone. The evil man just wasted someone just because of election. Ekweremmadu is being held in the UK wey no be murder charge o, and this? Hope he'd sent to Goron Dutse prison.

  5. The problem with these cases is that they stem from super unreliable witnesses and hearsay because our police officers actually don’t understand how the law itself works. They will beat confessions out of suspects, use inadmissible tactics, everything you will hear is he said she said allegedly, ZERO evidence, DNA no, untampered materials jokes, of course come court the guy will walk.
