The Kaduna Police Command has named Senator Shehu Sani as a person of interest in an ongoing murder investigation.
He obtained a copy of the letter the state police commissioner, Austin Iwar, addressed to Sani, who represent APC-Kaduna Central in the Senate.
“This is in connection with a case of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide transferred to this office by 1 Division, Nigerian Army, Kaduna, alongside with exhibit audio CD in which your name was mentioned by the principal suspect,” Iwar said in the letter.
The crisis also broke the APC chapter in the state into two factions.
But the police commissioner said the murder case is not politically-motivated.
“A case was transferred to me and I am handling the case,” Iwar told Premium Times.
“The matter is currently under investigation and we don’t think we have reached a stage yet where we could inform the public about it,” he added.
According to him, if Sani honours the police invitation, he would not be detained. He said the command would have arrested him if that is the intention.
