12 November 2012, 09:14

Dutse - The Jigawa Police Command has arrested six persons over the fierce clashes between the followers of Guri Local Government Chairman and a lawmaker, representing Guri/Kirikasama Federal Constituency on Sunday.

The Guri Local Government Chairman is Abdullahi Bulama, while the House of Representative member is Adamu Hassan.

NAN recalls that followers of the lawmaker and that of council chairman clashed during public hearing session on the review of the 1999 constitution on Saturday where vehicles belonging to the two political leaders were destroyed and many were injured.

The Police Public Relation Officer (PPRO) of the state, Abdu Jinjiri, told NAN on Sunday that those arrested would help them in their investigations.

Jinjiri said that after their investigation, whoever found wanting would be punished accordingly as the police would not allow any miscreant to disrupt the peace enjoyed in the state.

NAN investigation revealed that constitution review congress on Saturday in Guri Local Government Area was hijacked by hoodlums resulting to the destruction of no fewer than four vehicles and injuring many.

According to an eye witness at the gathering, Ahmed Abdul said that the incidence occurred when the lawmaker wanted to distribute some items to his supporters during the session but the council chairman ordered police to stop him which caused the crisis.

Efforts to reach both the council chairman and the house of representative member failed as none of them was found in the area and their phones were switched off.
