Police in Kano on Sunday night laid siege to the residence of a former chairman of Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission, PCACC, Muhuyi Rimingado.
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.
Report says, the police stationed their vehicles near his Yahaya Gusau Road residence, and laid ambush on him around 7pm.
Residents of the area confirmed the siege to DAILY NIGERIAN, saying they heard gunshots while the police were trying to arrest Mr Rimingado.
“We heard sounds of gunshots and we saw the security agents around the house. Later around 9:30 pm, we heard sound of screeching tyres as they chased a vehicle that came out of the house,” said Mr Rimingado’s neighbour who pleaded anonymity.
It is however unclear whether the police arrested him during the raid.
But Mr Rimingado, while citing health grounds and attaching medical records to boot, demanded a certified true copy of the petition the assembly received against him and requested for more time to appear.
Spokesman for Kano police Abdullahi Kiyawa said he was not briefed about the incident, but promised to find out the situation.
