Produce anti-govt lecturer, Kaduna CP tells KASU VC


By Luka Binniyat

KADUNA—The Kaduna State Kaduna Police Commissioner, CP, Umar Kofar-Naisa, has ordered, the Vice Chancellor, VC,  Kaduna State University, KASU,  Professor Willaims Quirix, to produce perceived anti-government lecturer, Dr. John Danfulani, over comments he claimed could cause violence.

This came as the University authorities since January 8, 2016, suspended the Political Science lecturer after querying him earlier.

But a group, Nerzit Patroitic Front, has kicked against the suspension of the lecturer, asking KASU to rescind its decision.

The group threatened to go to court, accusing KASU and state government of “persecuting Dr. Danfulani because he holds a different political ideology, ethnic and religious learning with the government of the day”.

A letter dated 21st  January, 2015 with reference – CR: 000/KDS/X/D6/Vol.82/150 signed CP Umar Kofar-Niasa addressed to the VC of KASU, reads: “This Department is investigating the above mentioned case involving one of your lecturers, Dr. John Danfulani. You are kindly requested to release him to interview the undersigned through O/C General Surveillance State SCIID Kaduna on 25/01/2006 at about 1000hrs to enable complete our investigation.”

Perhaps unknown to the CP, Danfunali had been suspended by KASU.

The register of KASU, Mrs Talatu A. Kuri, had on January 8, written Danfulani to inform  him of his suspension from the school.

The letter read: “We refer to our letter of query dated 5th  January, 2016 requesting you to explain  within 48 hours  why disciplinary action will not be taken against you for gross misconduct and confirm that you failed to respond. In line with S15 (1) 4 of KASU staff Conditions of Service, the Vice Chancellor has suspended you from duty forthwith and will report the matter to Council.”

    APC SIMPLETONS OF NORTHERN NIGERIA To them, APC is a religious party.Northern leaders under the party are demigods and crusaders of their ways of life.These people living in dusty villages of Sokoto, Kebbi, Zamfara, Kano, Jigawa are quick in calling you “Arne or Kafiri” once you express your view on anything their God PMB and his brigade of small Angels are doing. With their harmattan ravaged faces, rough legs, and brown teeth, they behave like a hard of sheep. All they bragged at is numbers…numbers that is economically useless and a gigantic social menace to Nigeria. A useless number that over 12m kids are rooming the streets with rubber plates begging for food. A useless number spreading polio in the entire continent. Who amongst them is strong enough to seal my lips on fuel scarcity and hardship we are experiencing? If PMB is your God and support for him an act worship, go ahead but don’t think you can force that on me. I want to travel abroad, I can’t buy dollars in official quarter, and can’t use my ATM abroad. Is it their fathers money? Am I a thief? Our people don’t steal…no single Southern Kaduna man has any EFCC case. It’s their people that stole this country dry. Look at the names of the thrives and where they came from. Stealing is deeply embedded in their culture. Tics! Attack the Attacker, and let high skies fall.(4rm JOHN DAN FULANI)
    Above is what danfulani posted on his wall
