KAROTA boss summoned by Police over assault on tricycle rider


By Ismail Auwal

Kano State Police Command has summoned the Managing Director of Kano Road and Traffic Agency ( KAROTA), Dr. Baffa Babba Dan Agundi for allegedly physically assaulting a 21-year-old tricycle rider.

SAHELIAN TIMES gathered that the MD arrived the Police headquarters around 2:30 pm on Monday and was allowed to leave around 5:00 pm after making a statement.

The paper has exclusively reported how one Mujittapha was unlucky to have received the full wrath of Baffa just because he intervened in trying to settle a rift between a fellow tricycle operator and KAROTA officials along Igbo road in Sabongari, Kano.

Allegations of human rights abuse against KAROTA are common occurrences. The agency which was set up to enforce traffic rules has been turned into playing the role of a state police, albeit unlawfully.
