An hilarious scenario played itself out when a chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Kano State, allegedly jumped over a fence, abandoned his flowing 'agbada', (a flowing gown popular in Nigeria), in an effort to evade arrest over electoral offences.

The party top shot and four other persons had been declared wanted by the Kano State Police Command for electoral offences during the governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.

The state Police Commissioner, Ibrahim Idris, while briefing newsmen, said suspect, a close associate of a serving Minister, was implicated by 14 suspects arrested by security agents for the destruction of sensitive electoral materials at Kauran Mata, Madobi local government area of the state.

The CP further disclosed that when security agents stormed the suspect’s residence to effect his arrest, he jumped a fence and escaped into the bush, abandoning his flowing gown.
