The Joint Task Force in Kano arrested a
man identified simply as Babawo, said to be a mastermind in the attack on Emir of Kano, Alh. Ado Bayero,, in a raid it conducted on Wednesday morning at
Dorayi, close to the old site of Bayero University Kano.

Security sources also confirmed to Daily
Trust that the suspect subsequently led
men of the JTF to two others – one of
them, an undergraduate student -
connected to the attack.

Several gunmen had opened fire on the
convoy of the Emir of Kano on Saturday
January 19, 2013 as the monarch headed away from an occasion he had just attended, killing six and injuring many including two of the Emir’s sons.

Security agents had on Monday, January
21, 2013 arrested a man who they claimed was a principal suspect in the
attack and who they said had been
providing them with useful information
about others involved in the attack, information which led to the arrest of
three others.
