Bizman petitions IGP over false accusation, wrongful prosecution

IGP Usman Alkali Baba

A businessman, Engr Abdallah Suleiman Katsina, has petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, to save him from continuing threat and harassment from a businessman and a Deputy Inspector-General of Police.

In a letter by his lawyer, A.S. Bawa, dated 27th April 2021, Katsina accused Zubairu Borodo and a Deputy Inspector General of Police, Zanna Mohammed, of criminal intimidation, unlawful detention, harassment, forgery, breach of fundamental right and abuse of power against him.

He said the police acted on false information by Borodo to unlawfully detain him and charge him to court from where he was cleared.

Katsina said Borodo caused the police to arrest him at the Kano airport on the allegation that he signed and reneged on a ‘Letter of Personal Guarantee’ of N30m in his favour over a telecom investment in 2010, which he was unaware of.

He said the purported investment transaction was for Borodo’s franchise dealer Zin Investment Nigeria Ltd to supply recharge cards, phones, and sim cards to G-Cell Wireless Ltd at 15 per cent upfront.

When contacted, DIG Zanna Mohammed said he did not know the details of the case because he was at the Police College, Wudil, Kano and could not recall directing the actions allegedly taken against the petitioner.

“What is my interest in the case? Does he know me? ”he asked.
