Polio Workers Shooting: Police Arrest, Detain 3 Wazobia FM Staff In Kano

IGPThree staff of Wazobia FM in Kano state, have been detained by the Police who are investigating the contents of a programme they aired last week.

The detained members of staff according to head of station, Salisu Bello Kankarofi, are: Mohammed Suleiman Gama (Head of programmes), Yakubu Musa Fagge (Presenter) and Mubarak Muhamad Sani (Reporter).

The trio were invited to the Bompai Police HQ around 9:30am on Sunday for questioning and have remained in detention since then. Also in detention is Abubakar Rabo, former director of Kano Films and Censorship Board.

Trouble started after the station aired a programme on alleged fraud in the polio vaccination exercise a few days before the attack on health workers in two local government areas, leading to the death of 9 of them.

The police are trying to establish a connection between the contents of the said programme and the shooting of the health workers.
