The Independent Investigative Panel (IIP) set up by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to probe alleged police impunity has reportedly ordered former Zamfara State Governor Ahmad Sani Yerima to appear before it on January 12, 2021.
Yerima was summoned over allegations of using some police officers to arrest, torture and detain a Katsina State-based businessman, Alhaji Musa Wapa, over a claim of N23 million.
The panel, led by Justice Suleiman Galadima (retd.), said Yerima’s name was mentioned many times in Wapa’s complaint before it, adding that it granted the complainant’s application that the senator be invited as a necessary part of the investigation.
