BREAKING! Police detained veteran journalist Danjuma Katsina on the order of Hon. Mansur Ali Mashi
News reaching us at KATSINA POST has it that Katsina State Police Command has detained a veteran journalist Danjuma Katsina for one day in the police headquarters on the order of Hon. Mansur Ali Mashi.
Real reason for his detention is still unclear but our reporter’s preliminary investigations revealed that it will not be unconnected with a ‘special investigative’ report done by the veteran journalist and which was published in some news media platforms regarding the Katsina newest lawmaker – Mansur Ali titled: ‘Bincike na musamman: Matsayin Gwamnan Katsina da zaben cike gurbin Mashi/Dutsi da akayi wanda aka rantsar da Mansur Ali Mashi’.
The journalist according to our investigation was invited by the Katsina Police command yesterday (Saturday 15th July, 2017) after the command received a letter of complaint from Hon. Mansur Ali Mashi asking the police to question the journalist regarding the article.
Already a team of journalists, friends and well-wishers stormed the police headquarter and secured his release on bail.
Honourable Mansur Ali Mashi is Katsina State newest lawmaker in the green chamber in Abuja following his election to represent Mashi/Dutsi federal constituency couple of months back.
Efforts to reach Mansur Ali for his comments proves abortive as the known number by our reporter was not going as at the time of this report.
