The sacked officer of Kano State Hisbah Board, Sani Nasidi Uba, popularly known as Sani Remo, has said the decision taken by the board to sack him has no relationship with what he had been accused of some months back.
The committee set by the Commander General, Ustaz Harun Muhammad Ibn Sina, has indicted Uba, having found him guilty of a serious misconduct.
In his interview with SAHELIAN TIMES, Sani Remo said the decision had nothing to do with allegation against him, adding that it is because they had a disagreement with the board.
“They did not dismiss me because of this issue; there was a burning issue between the board and I. We had some disagreements recently so they just used that opportunity to sack me. My disengagement with them had nothing to do with what they are accusing me of.
“They set up committee to investigate me and they gave the committee three days to submit the report but the committee failed to report within three days and Kano State police command has said they did not find me guilty after their investigation.
He added that, “Currently, there is a misunderstanding between the board and I, but I cannot reveal it until I hear from the Commander General. Remember, I am currently in court with the journalists who aired the story without contacting me for balancing and some Kannywood actors who shared the story.”
Uba, who is known to be at the forefront in arresting prostitutes and other wayward girls was, in February this year, arrested with a married woman in a hotel room at the Sabon Gari area of the state capital.
But the official then told Kano State Police Command that the woman in question was his niece who was having issues with her husband.
