Efforts to reach the Director General, Media and Publicity, Sanusi Tofa, proved abortive as he refused to take several phone calls from our correspondent.

However, when contacted, the Public Relations Officer of the Kano State Police Command, SP Haruna Abdullahi, said the incident had yet to be reported to the command.

“I will investigate the issue because it has not been reported to the command,” he said.
