The Bauchi State Police Command has confirmed the detention of Haruna Mohammed, the publisher of a Bauchi-based online investigative newspaper, Wikki Times.

Mohammed was arrested in Governor Bala Mohammed’s hometown, Duguri, Alkaleri LGA, last Saturday. Eyewitnesses told Daily Trust that the publisher was interviewing some women who were protesting that they submitted CVs and are yet to be employed, hence they would not vote.

An eyewitness said;

“Immediately, some hoodlums attempted to lynch Mohammed before the police intervened and whisked him away.”

Confirming Mohammed's arrest, the state police spokesperson SP Ahmed Wakil said;

“The police actually received a formal complaint that a journalist was inciting the electorate during Saturday’s general elections. That was why we quickly intervened to ensure we maintained law and order, especially at this period.”
