Tension Reportedly Heightens In Kano As Ganduje Set For Arraignment On April 17

From Kano comes a report that, there are fears and uncertainties as the government of Abba Kabir Yusuf moves to arraign the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and a former Governor of the State, Dr Umar Abdullahi Ganduje, over allegations of financial misappropriation.

According to Daily Post reports, some residents are reportedly planning to vacate their homes for fear of mayhem by political thugs in the state.

The ruling New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, and the state government filed charges against Ganduje, his wife and six others at the Kano State High Court last Tuesday.

The NNPP-led administration in the state had last week “launched an assault on two major grounds, a commission of Inquiry to probe Ganduje’s eight years tenure and litigation over alleged abuse of office.”

Daily Post also reports that support for or against the impending litigation in the volatile city had dominated political discussions on local radio stations, and social media “amid caution and threatd.”

Many residents who spoke over the current development expressed apprehension that the war may snowball into a security breach against the backdrop of deep-seated animosity between the feuding parties.
