Murder Charges: Doguwa has no case to answer-Kano govt
Kano State Government has said there are no substantial evidence to link the House of Representatives Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado Doguwa with the electoral violence that swept through his country’s home where it was alleged that about 15 NNPP supporters died.
The State Attorney General, and Commissioner for Justice, Barr. Musa A. Lawan, on Thursday told reporters at his office in respect of case diaries that, “We are of the opinion that we cannot substantiate charges of criminal conspiracy, mischief by fire and culpable Homicide against Ado Doguwa.”
The outgoing Commissioner for Justice stressed: “The statement of those that implicated were full of contradictions. And apart from their contradictory statements, we could not find medical evidence to prove that the death of the deceased persons was caused by Alhassan Ado Doguwa.”
“Based on the foregoing facts and observations, we are of the opinion that we cannot substantiate charges of criminal conspiracy, mischief by fire and culpable homicide against the Doguwa.
“This is because we cannot find sufficient evidence to link with the said offences considering the fact that we are faced with so many inculpatory and exculpatory evidence for and against him. And the statements of those that implicated him were full of contradictions,” he said.
Barr. Lawan added that apart from the contradictory comments, there was no medical evidence to prove that the act or omission of Doguwa caused the death of the deceased persons.
