Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

The Bauchi State Police Command has declared a House of Representatives member, Yakubu Abdullahi Shehu wanted for alleged murder.

He is alleged to be behind the death of Hussaini Musa Gwaba, APC chairman in Bauchi.

The chairman had received series of threats before he was finally murdered.

A bounty of N1 million was, therefore, placed on the lawmaker representing Bauchi federal constituency.

Shehu was elected on the platform of the Peoples Redemption Party (PDP) but defected to All Progressives Congress (APC).

A Special Police Gazette Bulletin CB: 2685/Bsx/VOL.T/4s was issued on Tuesday by Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ahmed Wakil.

The bulletin said the Nigeria Police Force, under the authority of the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, is searching for Shehu.

He is wanted in connection with a case of “criminal conspiracy, causing grievous hurt, inciting disturbances of public peace and culpable homicide”.

The police want “valid information that will lead to his arrest for interrogation and arraignment on criminal charges”.
