The Adamawa command of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has confirmed arrest of a 2019 gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Abel Behora, for alleged inciting statement. 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the command’s spokesman, SP Othman Abubakar, who confirmed the arrest to newsmen on Monday, April 30, in Yola, alleged that Behora committed the act in a political programme aired on a private radio station. 

According to the report, Abubakar said Behora would be charged to court on four counts, including defamation of character and dishing out of false information against the police. 

He urged politicians to play the game according to the rules, adding that the police were committed to ensure sustainable peace in the state. 

Meanwhile, controversial blogger/journalist Kemi Olunloyo’s brother, Akinkunle, was also on Monday, April 30, allegedly arrested over N40 million fraud. The son of former governor of Oyo state, Dr. Victor Omololu Olunloyo was arraigned before the Igbosere Magistrate Court, in Lagos for defrauding a financial institution of the said amount. 

The 40-year-old Akinkunle who was identified as a former club owner, was charged alongside his entertainment firm, Code Media Limited, by the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU).
