Recalls that the police stationed their vehicles near Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, Yahaya Gusau road residence, and laid ambush on him around 7pm, on Sunday.

Confirming the development to Solacebase on Monday, Kano Police Image Maker, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa said ‘’ Our men were at the house to serve him an invitation but we could not do that as they refused us to do so.’’

He said the invitation was sequel to the court order dismissing the suit filed by the suspended anti-graft chairman seeking order to stop his arrest.

‘’So our men decided to stay around the house so as to serve him the invitation as we have information that he was in the house,’’ Kiyawa said.

When asked on the alleged shooting during the siege by the police, Abdullahi Kiyawa told Solacebase that the police never shot at all insisting that there was no need for that.’’

On March 1, a Federal High Court sitting in Kano dismissed an ex parte application filed by Mr Rimingado, seeking to stop an investigative panel instituted by Kano State House of Assembly and restrain the police from investigating, arresting or intimidating him, pending the hearing and determination of subsisting court action instituted at state high court.

Recall that the Kano State House of Assembly had invited Mr Rimingado to appear before its ad-hoc committee investigating a petition against him on July 14, 2021.

But Mr Rigingado, while citing health grounds and attaching medical records to the letter, demanded a certified true copy of the petition the assembly received against him and requested for more time appear.

On July 19, the National Hospital wrote to the Kano State House of Assembly, saying the medical records he presented to the House were fake.

In its reply dated July 19, 2021 with reference number NHA/CMAC/GC/0117/2021/V.I/01 and signed by the director, Clinical Services, Dr. A.A. Umar, the National Hospital said it investigated the documents and discovered that they were forged.

Mr Rimingado was suspended in July last year after opening probe on financial scandals and inflated contracts allegedly awarded to some companies linked to the governor’s family.

Solacebase tried contacting Muhuyi Rimingado to find out his own side of the story but his phone lines were off.
