Oct 24, 2012 – Sokoto Governor Aliyu Flogs PHCN Manager For Failing To Produce Electricity

Governor of Sokoto State, Northwest Nigeria, Aliyu Wamakko, has flogged a manager of Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN, for failing to supply electricity to his community.

Premium Times, an online news portal reports that the governor flogged the manager and ordered his security officials to assault two other PHCN staff.

The management of the Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company, KEDC, a subsidiary of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN, accused the Governor of assaulting the workers.

The Acting Managing Director of the Company, Mohammed Adamu, made this known at a press briefing late Monday at the company’s Doka office in Kaduna.

Mr. Adamu explained that the staff was summoned by the governor and was beaten to a pulp by the Governor and some of his aides.

“On Saturday, 20th October, 2012, an unusual and unfortunate event took place which was beyond our comprehension. On the said date our business manager, Gwiwa Business Unit, Sokoto state, Moses Osigwe, was invited by the Executive Governor of the State, Aliyu Magatarkada Wamakko to his personal residence, over the issue of lack of power supply to his hometown, Wamakko, as a result of a failed 2.5MVA transformer.

“He accused our staff of deliberately denying his community, Wamakko, of power supply. As the business manager was trying to explain to him, the governor just brought out a horse whip (popularly known as bulala in Hausa language) and lashed him to a pulp,” Mr. Adamu said.

The PHCN boss said the governor’s brutality did not stop at being the direct aggressor, “as he also invited and instructed two hefty mobile police men to continue with the beating spree until the business manager fell on the ground and became unconscious.”

“In the same vain, the Governor did not stop at the beating of our business manager but invited two other staff of the company namely, Isyaku Daura, Officer 2 (Electrical) and Nuruddeen Mohammed, Staff 1 (Lines) and ordered the mobile policemen to beat them up, also to a pulp,” he lamented.

He described the governor’s action as uncalled for, barbaric, and uncivilised. The Senior Special Assistant to the Sokoto state Governor, Sani Umar, when contacted on phone told reporters that he was driving and would call back. He was yet to do so as at the time of this report.(Credit:dailypost)

    In a civilized society, this opportunist (called Governor) would have served a very long jail term for his action.
    In our sometimes barbaric Nigeria, this “Federal allocation collecting political thug” will soon receive a national award.
    Most are just representative of their political parties, imposed for the purpose of “cornering” federal allocations

    Proper and indept investigation will reveal that this barbaric man called governor is one of the boko haram godfathers. He is stupid, calous and devilish. I raise motion for his impeachement. If he needs power in his community, why didn’t he make necessary provision for that? In fact, this man must be jailed or bombed in his office live!

    THE GOVERNOR HAS JUST EXHIBITED THE ANIMALISTIC TENDENCES IN HIM. HOW COULD A GOVERNOR DESCEND SO LOW? IS IT BECAUSE HE HAS IMMUNITY? HE HAS ONLY SUCCEEDED IN DISGRACING HIMSELF, NOT THE PHCN OFFICIALS. I MAKE BOLD TO SAY THIS GOVERNOR IS A BEAST. HE SHOULD BE SUED FOR DAMAGES.

    Governor Aliyu is a retired garage Tug otherwise known as ”Agberu” his type does not belong to modern days civilization. he was raised knowing only how to feed & breastmilk the animals; but nigeria currupt political system in their usual messy nature also handpicked Aliyu as a tug with no background & today he is a governor so what do you expect fr a lunatic of such a tug i’m not surprised.
