Why Former Governor Sule Lamido Was Arrested

Operatives of the Nigerian Police Force on Sunday arrested a former governor of Jigawa state, Alh. Sule Lamido. He was picked up by officers from the Kano state police command for inciting his supporters to stop the conduct of local government elections organized by the current governor of Jigawa state, Muhammad Badaru.

The elections are scheduled to hold on July 1. Lamido was arrested at his Sharada Kano home on Sunday morning and taken to the Zone One Command of the Nigeria Police in Kano.
