Barely a day after popular Hausa musician, Ado
Daukaka was released by his abductors, he was
arrested by police in Adamawa, 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 said.
"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.
