Woman Cries Out Over Husband's Long Detention In Abuja

A housewife, Saratu AlHassan has appealed to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris, to prevail on policemen at Area 10, Garki, Abuja, to release her husband who has remained in police detention since last Tuesday.

She said his continuous incarceration has brought untold hardship to their family, adding that his 70-year-old mother, who is unaware of the situation, is worried because she has neither spoken to nor seen him since.

Mr. Yusuf AlHassan, a Lagos-based businessman and stockbroker, was arrested at the behest of a former Director-General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), following an alleged business transaction that turned awry.

According to Saratu, the man, who was a friend to her husband before he became SEC’s DG, invested some money in AlHassan’s company and usually calls her husband to send money to different individuals, all of which were documented.

“But because he went broke, the former DG woke up and claimed that my husband stole his money, that the money he invested didn’t yield profit. 

“My husband was first arrested in December and flown to Abuja, where they kept him for some days before he was granted bail.

“He showed the policemen the documents of transactions and the errands he was running for the man but they didn’t listen because a retired Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) was backing him. Because of the man, my husband’s importation company became bankrupt.

“Besides, he would also demand that money be sent to certain people; he virtually turned my husband to his errand boy. My husband barely had time for the business because he was helping his friend to succeed. See the way the man now wants to repay him.

“After he was released in December, the man claimed that the money he invested then and the accrued interest had amounted to about N75m, and my husband must pay. My husband denied owing him but the [police is still detaining him].
