Warrant of arrest for Katsina Governor's aide

04 April 2014, 07:38Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Ali Abu-Bakr Bauranya, a security aide to Katsina Governor, Ibrahim Shema, faces arrest for his alleged continued failure to appear in court despite a bench warrant issued to him.

The Magistrates Court had last week issued a bench warrant against the security aide for his failure to appear in court to answer to charges filed against him by one Yahaya Kabir over alleged assault and criminal force among other charges.

Bauranya failed to appear in court as directed by the chief magistrate, a development that made the counsel to the complainant, Barrister Umar to call the attention of the court to the continued disrespect of a valid court order by the accused.

The counsel to the complainant similarly argued that with the conduct of the accused and their demand for justice, they were therefore, according to him, left with no option other than to demand for a warrant of arrest to be issued against the accused.

The Chief Magistrate, Kabir Shu’aibu, therefore directed that the accused be arrested.

Kabir had earlier filed charges of alleged assault, criminal force, criminal intimidation, mischief and intentional insult against the security aide.
He alleged that on 13 March, the accused attacked him and smashed his car following a confrontation.
