Report from Daily Nigerian has alleged that Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje is planning to bring an atrocious leader of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Kolo Yusuf, as the state’s police commissioner.
He is said to be deployed to Kano to help the APC rig 2023 elections.
Barrister Audu Bulama Bukarti has affirmed this allegation in his tweet and recalling how Mr Kolo tortured and killed his client.
The Daily Nigerian newspaper went on to claiming that Dr Ganduje and Mr Kolo will meet this weekend to finalize the deal.
Recall that SARS was infamous for rights violations, torture, arbitrary murders, and suspicious incarceration up until its termination in October 2020 following widespread demonstrations, popularly known as the #EndSars protests.
Mr. Yusuf, who currently oversees Special Tactical Command, previously oversaw SARS in Kano, where he was charged with torturing individuals and perpetrating arbitrary deaths and detentions.
Similarly, another source who claimed for anonymity confirmed to journalists that the Kano governor had been assured that all would go well as all indications showed that the IGP had agreed to execute the plan.
In the 2019 election, the APC was alleged to have rigged the governorship election which saw Ganduje come back to power, after controversially defeating Abba Gida-Gida in an lection that would never be forgotten by Kwankwasiyya adherents.
