Kano State deputy governor, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna and the Commissioner for local government, Mutari Sule Garo have been arrested by police operatives on election duty for alleged electoral misconduct.

They were arrested in the early hours of Monday.

The deputy governor alongside his ADC, alongside the local government Chairman, Lamin Sani, were apprehended by the police at the INEC collation centre at Nassarawa local council for allegedly destroying results sheets.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Abdullahi Haruna confirmed the arrest, disclosing that the suspects have been detained at the police headquarters in Bompai, Kano.

The two top officials of government were arrested some minutes after 2 a.m. Monday after they arrived the venue of the state collation centre and began to disrupt the process.

Their actions led to a halt in the announcement of results at the centre after some youth suspected to be supporters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, tried to attack the two officials.

As at the time of their arrest, results from 43 of Kano’s 44 local governments had been announced and the PDP candidate, Abba Yusuf, was leading the incumbent governor, Abdullahi Ganduje of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

While the PDP candidate has so far scored 960,004 votes, Ganduje of the APC has 953,522 votes.
