Yabo, in a viral video clip, had taken a swipe on Mr El-Rufa’i and scholars in the state for the continuous ban on religious gatherings in the state.
Speaking to Daily Trust, Abdullahi Abubakar-Yabo, a nephew of the arrested scholar disclosed that Mr Yabo was arrested around 4pm on Friday and transported to Kaduna where he would be charged.
According to Mr Abubakar-Yabo, some plain-clothed policemen came to the scholar’s residence while they were saying their Asr prayer and immediately after the prayer, they called him aside and showed him a warrant of arrest issued by a Magistrate court in Kaduna.
“After reading the paper, Malam did not utter a word, he just moved into his house, came back and entered their vehicle.
“It was after they left that he called and notified us about the arrest, that the Attorney-General of Kaduna State had written a petition against him over his recent remarks against their governor,” Mr Abdullahi-Yabo said.
