Senator Shehu Sani Named Suspect In Murder Case, Invited By Police

Kaduna State Police Commissioner Austin Iwar has invited Senator Shehu Sani for questioning in a homicide investigation.

The police said he is a person of interest to the murder saga.

They requested the kaduba Central senator to report on April 30.

A letter was routed through the Clerk of the National Assembly. A copy of it was sent to Senate President Bukola Saraki.

“This is in connection with a case of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide transferred to this office by 1 Division, Nigerian Army, Kaduna, alongside with exhibit audio CD in which your name was mentioned by the principal suspect,” CP Iwar said in a letter to Sani.

But the Senator alleged that the Kaduna State government had concluded plans to frame him up with a murder case, necessitating the move by the police to label him as person of interest.

One Isa Garba, one of the suspects in a murder case was said to have implicated the senator.

It was gathered that Sani’s name was mentioned when the suspect, said to have participated in the killings of one Lawal Madugu, implicated another person called Bashir Hamdada.

Although he did not pick telephone calls put across to him by The Nation, the police commissioner was reported to have said that the case was not politically-motivated.
