Ikrah Aliyu Bilbis, a former minister of state for information and senatorial candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the general election of 2023, and other individuals have been detained by the Zamfara State Police Command for allegedly destroying APC campaign billboards (APC).
A PDP leader, Aliyu Adamu Barmo, expressed his concern about the arrest of PDP members to journalists in Gusau, the state’s capital, as a result of the arrival of the previous PDP governorship candidate, Dauda Lawan Dare.
Barmo argued that it was extremely inappropriate for the APC-led administration to utilize the police to harass PDP leaders.
According to him, the visit of Dauda Lawan Dare to his home state was within his fundamental human rights.
Also, commenting on the matter, acting state chairman of the PDP, Mukhtar Lugga, condemned the arrest of the PDP members by the state government. He stated that the PDP rally on Sunday was done with the approval of appropriate authorities.
When contacted, Zamfara State Police Command’s spokesman, SP Muhammad Shehu, did not respond to several calls and text messages sent to his known phone line as at the time of filing this report
