The Center for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) on Thursday demands security agencies to arrest and investigate Kano state Commissioner for Special Duties Abdulahi Abbas for reuesting his supporters to stone former governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso who is the Senator representing Kano Central at the Senate.
Abdullahi Abbas had appeared in a viral video clip that emerged on Wednesday asking his supporters to stone Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso during his scheduled visit to Kano by the end of this month.
CITAD said Abdulahi Abbas comments are capable of disrupting the peace enjoyed by the people of the state given his social and political standing in the society
At a news conference on Thursday, CITAD Senior Program Officer Isa Garba warned that the intra party rivalry between the Gandujiyya and the Kwankwasiyya camps which all belong to the All Progressives Congress ( APC) is posing serious threats to Kano state.
“The most recent dangerous development in this crisis is the incessant blowing of conflict trumpet by the two groups, especially with respect to the scheduled visit of the former governor , Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and the reaction of the Gandujiyya group on the matter.”
“ This becomes clear when a high profile official of the Gandujiyya group who is also a commissioner was quoted in a video clip calling on their supporters to stone what he referred to as “ the political Satan of Kano”
The Civil Society Group said the state Commissioner for Special Duties Abdullahi Abbas indirectly in the video clip confessed to organizing the crisis in Minjibir and the clash at Hawan Daushe which resulted to the maiming of many people.
CITAD recommended that security agents should invite Abdullahi Abbas for investigation on the statement and his planned actions on the visit of Senator Kwankwaso to the state.
The security agents should also use the statement in furthering their investigation on the Hawan Daushe crisis as well as urging the security agents to always handle issues objectively
