A yet to be identified assistant superintendent of police (ASP) has been arraigned before a Kano mobile court for assaulting a police sergeant.

The police ASP was approached during COVID-19 routine security patrol, and when quizzed, the convict introduced himself to be a serving policeman. But when further interrogated, it was discovered that he was a police constabulary.

The finding led to exchange of words, and the constabulary launched a physical attack on a police sergeant, desecrating his his police uniform in the process, Judicial Sketch reports.

The spokesman Kano State judiciary, Baba Jibo Ibrahim who confirmed the incidence said the fake police ASP was dragged before the mobile court, noting that the court ordered that the suspected impostor should be handed over to Kano police command for further investigation.

Meanwhile, the mobile courts have convicted 717 persons for violating the subsisting lockdown order in the state.

In his words “out of the 717 persons convicted are some Muslim clerics from Minjibir local government. The court ordered that they should go and sanitize the home of the district head of Minjibir and they were penalized to pay N10, 000:00 fine each.
