By Abdullahi Kiyawa
On 20 March 2023 at about 14:00 hours, some group of thugs under the cover of celebrating Gubernatorial Election Victory went berserk, stormed and attacked the residence of one Dauda Adamu Abdullahi (Rarara) located at Hausawa Layout Zoo Road Kano, his Studio located behind Gidan Dan Asabe Zoo Road.
His office named “13×13” Movement located at opposite Kano Zoo, Zoo Road Kano, burnt and destroyed parts of the buildings, his two Motor Vehicles, looted and destroyed properties worth Millions of Naira, and also attacked other four commercial shops belonging to four different people.
Another group also attacked the All Progressive Congress (APC) State Secretariat Office located at Hotoro, Kano, destroyed parts of the building and looted properties.
On receipt of the reports, teams of Operation Restore Peace as well as firefighters were mobilized to the scenes.
The fire was brought under control and normalcy was immediately restored.
Twenty-One (21) suspects were arrested in connection with the attack at Zoo Road and Eight (8) suspects were arrested for the attack and destruction at APC State Secretariat Office.
Some looted properties were recovered as follows;
i. Ice Cream Machine
ii. Motorcycle Hajue-UD

It is very obvious from the above that, these are not either celebrants or members of any political party, but criminals who are out to ensure they cash in on the celebration mood to perpetuate crimes, as such they will be charged to court upon completion of the investigation.
