A frontline Peoples Democratic Party , PDP, governorship aspirant in Kano state, Muhuyi Magaji, Esq was on Thursday arrested by fierce looking armed men of the Nigeria Police while being screened by the PDP governorship screening committee in Abuja.

Magaji has been critical about the administration of Governor Abudullahi Umar Ganduje on alleged corruption.

His arrest generated tension at the venue as observers raised eye-brow over the way and manner men of the police force stormed the venue.

The warrant of arrest of Magaji does not state any offence committed by the suspended chairman.

A press statement issued Faruok Saleh said though Magaji had been screened, he however, expressed worry over his security.

The suspended Chairman is an aspirant on the platform of PDP to run for the office of the Governor of Kano State.

“The police are ready to take him to Kano, since the warrant was issued from Kano.

“We are worry about his safety. It is obvious this is political. His main crime was investigating Governor Ganduje and his family corruption allegation“.
