It has been confirmed that an aide to Kaduna State Governor Nasir Elrufai known as Mallam Uba Sani has ordered the Police in Kaduna to arrest a 21 year old man, Ado Bala for posting messages on his facebook page critical of the aide. Mr Ado Bala was arrested by a team of police men who raided his house in Sabon Gari ward of Kaduna South LG.
The Governor’s aide doubles as special adviser political to the Governor at the same time senatorial aspirant. Mr Ado Bala has consistently used his facebook wall to chide the Governor’s aide.
Mr Ado Bala has posted on the immoral private and public life of Mallam Uba Sani,a vice known to so many political watchers in the state. In some of the posts,Mr Ado gave vivid instances how the aide ‘sleeps with married and unmarried women from one hotel to another Mr Ado’s allegations was corroborated by many commentators who accused the political adviser of living life in Kaduna Hotels.
The cyberspace in Kaduna and environs has been filled with condemnation of the political adviser’s highhandedness and intolerance.
Most of the postings also accused Mallam Uba Sani of funding and arming thugs in the state. One of the post by Sa’adatu Isa reads “ Uba Sani is the defactor Deputy Governor in Kaduna state. He does what he wishes and even break the law and the Governor appears to be afraid of him. Uba Sani runs a militia in Kaduna,using them to hunt down critics of the Governor in the state. Uba Sani behaves as one who owns the Government and the ruling APC in the state. He is the negative face of the Elrufai Government’.
As of the time of writing this report,Ado Bala is in police custody. Unconfirmed report has it that he was tortured on the orders of Uba Sani and demanded that he must apologize or go to jail.
This is not the first time the Governor’s political adviser has ordered for arrest of his critics. In May this year,UBA Sani used the police to arrest a 22 year old ABU undergrad called Abdulazeez Bin Baz for also criticizing him on his facebook wall. Master Bin Baz was arrested charged magistrate court and remanded in Prison Custody. It has been alleged that the adviser personally called the magistrate and demanded the young man be humiliated.
