Atiku Boza-Boza and Adamu Babale are being detained on the orders of an area court following their arraignment on allegations of “conspiracy and intentional insult”, according to Premium Times.
We gathered that on Wednesday, the police at Pantami Division of the metropolis arrested and detained Mr Boza-Boza, who was a personal assistant to former Gombe State governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo.
Adamu Babale, an associate of Mr Boza-Boza who went to the police station to secure the bail of his fellow party man, was also detained.
The two were then taken before the Area Court in Pantami in handcuffs on Thursday on charges of conspiring to abuse Governor Yahaya.
The police accused the two PDP stalwarts of calling the governor “leader of promise breakers” according to the Police’s First Information Report (FIR).
The alleged offence, according to the charge sheet, is contrary to Section 96 & 155 of the Penal Code Law.
However, a spokesperson to the governor, Abdullahi Misilli said Governor Yahaya was not behind the travail of the two PDP members.
“This is not true. The governor did not order the arrest of anybody. If they have issues, it must be with another person, not the governor,” Andullahi said.
Mr Misilli described the alleged role of the governor as “antics of the opposition”.
