El-Rufai Anointed Candidate: Police Allegedly Arrest, Torture Man Over Facebook Post

Operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command have arrested a young man, Husaini Galadima over a Facebook post complaining about Senator Uba Sani representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District for failing on his promise to give him a permanent job after working for him for about five years.

Husaini was allegedly arrested around 3:00 pm on Saturday in a market by armed policemen and taken to Metro Police Station at Tundu Wada.

According to SaharaReporters, Husaini had been working for the senator since 2017 when he declared to contest for the senatorial seat with an agreement that he (Sanator Uba Sani) would give him a permanent appointment as an aide once he won the election.

He narrated on his Facebook page in Hausa that he had been abandoned and that Sani had refused to fulfil his promise since he was elected as senator in 2019.

The post read, “Four other people and I have worked so hard for Senator Uba Sani since 2017 when he declared to contest for his senatorial seat based on an agreement that he will help us with jobs if he won the election.

“But since his victory, Uba Sani has ignored me and failed to fulfil his promise but he has settled the other four people.

“Alhaji Muhammad Sani Kila, Hon Ach Abubakar Rabi’u Abubakar and Hon Bala Jalingo are all aware of the agreement.

“I want the public to take note that if anything happens to me, Senator Uba Sani and his thugs should be held responsible because they are currently threatening me.”

The aforementioned publication reported that a relation disclosed that Husaini was tortured after he was subsequently arrested by some armed policemen in a market on Saturday.

The source added that Husaini had been in custody since then despite efforts by family members to get him released.

“Some family members were at the police station on Saturday and will be there again this (Sunday) morning,” the source said.
Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai last Thursday at a closed-door meeting with party stakeholders endorsed Uba Sani as the consensus governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 election in the state.

The state police spokesperson, Mohammed Jalige, said he was out of the state but promised he would find out about the matter and get back. However, he had yet to get back as of the time of filing this report.
