Court Orders AIG To Arrest Senator For Contempt


Alhaji Nuhu Dawaki Aminu of the Chief Magistrate Court, sitting in Ringim, Jigawa State, has ordered the Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG, Zone 1 (comprising Kano, Katsina, Jigawa, and Kano States), to arrest Senator Danladi Sankara and bring him to his court on December 23, 2013, as the state Commissioner of Polce, Theophilus Kayode, could not carry out the order.

The Chief Magistrate had given an order for the arrest of Sankara, representing Jigawa Northwest Senatorial District, his son and another person over alleged contempt of his court.

However, when the court resumed, yesterday, without the Senator being arrested and brought to court by the police, the Chief Magistrate said: “As the Jigawa State Commissioner of Police failed to produce the suspects before the court, the AIG in charge of Zone 1, which covers Kano, Katsina and Jigawa states must arrest the suspects and bring them before the court during the next sitting.
