Ibrahim Shekarau, a former governor of Kano state, has threatened to sue Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police (IGP), over a document accusing him of plotting the assassination of one Sheikh Jafaru.
The said document was found in the house of Danjuma Goje, senator representing Gombe central, after the police raided it.
In a letter addressed to the IGP, Shekarau said the police should investigate the issue and not mention the discovery of the “incriminating document” at Goje’s residence.
“I would appreciate it if you address the issue commencing an immediate thorough investigation on the content of said write up recovered at Senator Danjuma Goje’s residence,” he said.
“Making available to me and the general public, the contents of the write-up on my alleged involvement in the assassination of the Sheikh, in the spirit of justice and fair play.
“Cross-checking your office records to determine whether or not the recovered document from Senator Goje is different from the widely circulated one in 2009, which your office investigated under IGP Hafizu Ringim and on which the then PPRO, ACP Emmanuel Ojukwu kept the public informed on the investigations of the police on the matter.
“Finally, I urge you to recognise the need for the urgent handling of this matter to speedily exonerate me of any complicity, and to douse tension from within my admirers and the general public.
“Failure to do this within two weeks of the receipt of this letter may compel me to initiate appropriate legal action, to enforce my fundamental human right, as provided for in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
