KATSINA – Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Chieftain, Alhaji Umar Abdullahi Tsauri popularly known as Tata has been remanded in prison custody, Counsel to Tata, Barrister Uyi Igunma has disclosed.
The counsel who disclosed this to NEW TRUST NEWS Tata was arraigned before Chief Magistrate court I and later remanded in prison custody till Monday.
Tata’s counsel said his client Tata was arrested for distribution of food to Muslim faithful in Dutsi Local government area of the state in the spirit of the Month of Ramadan.
According to the police, Tata was arrested based on a petition signed by a 13 member community leaders in Dutsi town against Umar Tata over his free food distribution to less privileged.
It rather came as shock to Katsina people to witness the flagging off of same free Ramadan feeding by Katsina State government under the Masari House-to-House campaign organization the same day Umar Tata was sent to prison for the same act.
According to Katsina State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Alh. Salisu Yusuf Majigiri said “what is happening to Umar Tata is an insult to PDP and its members”.
As the PDP Chairman I think this is a selective justice, it is about intimidation and harassment. The most unfortunate thing is this is all happening in the month of Ramadan.”
The PDP chairman Majigiri further question APC justifications for flagging off their own version of free Ramadan Feeding and said this type of selective justice can only happen in Katsina State.
