The Police in Borno state on Tuesday, July 17, arrested an governorship aspirant in the state, Grema Terrab.
Terrab was arrested by officials of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) while delivering a speech at the event held in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
Premium Times reports that Terrab is wanted by the police for his role in an alleged murder case which took place in his home while he was hosting a political meeting in April.
It was gathered that although, Terrab had reported the incident to the police, his family members including his wife were also arrested by the SARS operatives.
The arrest followed the politicians appearance in the state since the incident happened in Maiduguri. However, his campaign posters and bill boards currently litter Maiduguri.
The SARS team and a dozen of other officers in plain clothes laid siege at the venue of the event. While Terrab’s aides were seen begging some of the police officers not to carry out the arrest, the politician was seen moving closer to Atiku who was guided out of the hall by his aides as he finished his speech.
n a swift move, the SARS operatives held onto Terrab, dragged him away and bundled him into one SARS patrol vehicles.
