The Speaker of House of Assembly in Kano state, Hamisu Chidari, has been reportedly declared wanted by the Nigerian government.
He was declared wanted for allegedly violating new protocols put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
It was gathered that Chidari had returned to Nigeria via the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, from Saudi Arabia through an Ethiopian airline on May 17, 2021.
He was, however, said to have presented a COVID-19 test result “which was found to be fake” by the health authorities in Nigeria.
Chidari, with passport number, B50022050, was listed as number 66 on the list of 132 violators which was released and publicised on Thursday by the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19.
The federal government had on May 23 published the first batch of the list of violators containing 90 names. The list had included some Indians who were declared as uncategorised violators.
