Barely a day after popular Hausa musician, Ado
Daukaka was released by his abductors, he was
arrested by Adamawa police, Premium Times
The police said Daukaka was invited to give
details concerning his abduction but family
sources said the singer was arrested following a
complaint made by the lawmaker representing
Yola North in the state House of Assembly,
Suleiman Alkali, who claimed that the musician
ridiculed him in a song which condemned the level
of corruption and inefficiency in the state.
Daukaka was later granted bail on the condition
that he reports back on Monday. The chairman of
the Adamawa Concern Citizen a pressure group,
Hussaini Bello, who condemned the arrest, said:
“The way and manner things are happening
will not augur well for the state. They just
want to intimidate those that are criticising the
charade playing out in the state. We had
earlier condemned the abduction of this
famous singer, not to talk of the unjust arrest
as we will not relent in investigating the matter
and whoever that has hand in it must be
exposed. In our society singers use their God-
given talents to capture the mood of the
society, the songs sometimes don’t go down
well with those in power except if the singer
praises them,” he said.
The state police spokesman, Othman Abubakar,
said the singer was only invited to clarify issues
regarding his abduction.
“You know, he was weak when he was found
and brought to the state police headquarters
so we feel he should be allowed to go to his
family. Well, if there was complaint against
him by the lawmaker that’s is a different
matter entirely,” said Mr. Abubakar.
Daukaka’s arrest was confirmed by the lawmaker
who lodged a complaint against him. “Yes, it’s
true that he was detained at the police
headquarters following the complaint I lodged,” he
“I lodged complaint against him, this is
because they were peddling rumour that I have
hand in his abduction. Firstly, I want him to
explain to the police whether he was actually
abducted or he ran and hid somewhere.
Secondly, there was defamation of character
against me in the song he composed that I
built a brothel and was chasing women. So,
because he pretend to the police that he was
sick and that’s why he was released on bail,”
said the lawmaker.
