Kebbi Governor Slaps ADC For Being Over Zealous

This happened on the 9th of this month, but
Sahara Reporters just got to hear of it.
SaharaReporters has learned of a simmering tension in Kebbi
State between Governor Saidu Nasamu Dakingari and police officers upset about
the governor’s assault of his aide de camp, Mohammed Umar, on the 9th of September.
Several police sources in the state told a correspondent of
SaharaReporters that the assault took place at the Ahmadu Bello International
Airport in the state capital, Birnin-Kebbi, at a ceremony marking the airlift
of pilgrims. They stated that the unruly governor slapped his ADC in the
presence of pilgrims and other officials at the ceremony.

According to all sources, Mr. Dakingari’s ADC had prevented
a total stranger who was attempting to pull at the governor’s clothes. Instead
of commending his ADC for protecting him, the governor allegedly slapped him,
accusing him of over-zealousness in preventing a stranger from meeting him. The
ADC is a superintendent of police.
Several of the police officers told SaharaReporters that
they were dismayed that the governor had not apologized for assaulting and
humiliating his ADC. They also accused the Inspector General of Police in Abuja
of failing to intervene and demand an apology and restitution for the assaulted
The irate officers said they were determined to take to the
streets to protest the degrading treatment meted out to one of their own.
“The police authorities in Abuja have refused to comment
about the issue,” said one of the angry police officers in Kebbi State.
