Alleged Assault: Reps Majority Leader Apologises To Journalist

The House of Representatives Majority Leader, Alhassan Doguwa, has publicly apologised to Kano Leadership Newspaper correspondent, Abdullahi Yakubu, whom he allegedly assaulted recently.

The journalist had dragged Doguwa to a Magistrate Court in the state for allegedly assaulting him when he attended a press conference at the lawmaker’s residence.

The press conference was said to be at the instance of the lawmaker, who was accused of gate-crashing into an All Progressives Congress stakeholders meeting in Kano recently, with the meeting ending in crisis.

The court subsequently ordered the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 1, to investigate the alleged assault case filed by the journalist against the lawmaker.

‘’I am a trained journalist. Even after my service at the National Assembly, I will still go back to my primary constituency of journalism, hence, I am very sorry over the issue,’’ Doguwa said in the interview.
