The Kaduna State Police Command on Thursday denied holding meeting with any political group over Sen. Shehu Sani's suspension by the APC in the state.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Zubairu Abubakar, a DSP, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview in Kaduna that the command did not hold any meeting with the leadership of All Progressive Congress (APC) on Wednesday.

"I am not aware of any meeting with the APC leadership in the state on Wednesday."

Abubakar was reacting to a statement issued by the APC in the state that the Police Command had summoned the party leadership on Wednesday, Jan. 13, over the suspension of Sen. Shehu Sani.

The Assistant Publicity Secretary of the party, Salisu Wusono who issued the statement earlier on Thursday in Kaduna, said that the Command had expressed satisfaction with the reasons the party advanced for Sani’s suspension.

The statement reads in part "On Wednesday, we got invitation from the police, following our reaffirmation of Senator Shehu Sani's suspension.

"As leaders of a disciplined party and law abiding citizens, we honored the invitation and the police were satisfied with our presentation.

"We told them that, the 11-month suspension stands and was done in line with the party’s constitution.

"There is no single individual no matter his or her status, that is above the party.

''The 11-month suspension stands and it was done in accordance with our constitution and powers vested in the leadership,"  Wusono had said in the statement.

According to him, the embattled senator, who represents Kaduna Central Senatorial District, had complained to the police, on the party’s insistence of suspending him after intervention of the Deputy National Chairman (North-West), Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir.
