Dozens of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, on Sunday, stormed the state police headquarters in Gusau, the Zamfara State capital, demanding the unconstitutional release of their leader, Abu Dan-Tabawa, and others
Mr Dan-Tabawa was arrested for holding a secret meeting with armed bandits, according to the Zamfara State governor’s media aide, Zailani Baffa .
The protesters, holding placards with different inscriptions, accused the state police commissioner, Usman Nagogo, of partisanship over alleged frequent arrest of their members in the state.
The police on Saturday evening arrested Mr Dan-Tabawa, a political ally of the immediate past governor of the state, Abdulaziz Yari, at his residence in Gusau, following alleged sabotage of security.
One of the protesters accused the state police commissioner of being the campaign director of the ruling Peoples Democratic party in Zamfara
