According to police and the Kano State Ministry of Justice’s Department of Public Prosecution, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, has been cleared of murder charges.
According to sources, there is no substantive evidence in the police case files to charge him with culpable homicide.
Musa A. Lawan, Kano State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, stated on Thursday while briefing journalists on the government’s findings and legal recommendations on the criminal charges filed against the lawmaker that available evidence contained in the police case diary indicated no sufficient evidence to link Doguwa with the said offences despite contradictory comments of witnesses against the suspect.
“Based on the foregoing facts and observations, we believe we cannot substantiate the Doguwa’s charges of criminal conspiracy, mischief by fire, and culpable homicide.”
“This is due to the fact that we cannot find sufficient evidence to link with the aforementioned offenses, despite the fact that we are confronted with so much inculpatory and exculpatory evidence for and against him.” “And the statements of those who implicated him were riddled with inconsistencies,” he added.
Barr. Lawan went on to say that, other from the contradicting remarks, there was no medical proof to indicate that Doguwa’s conduct or omission caused the deaths of the deceased.
