It is alleged that the defendant incited the public to revolt against the Kano State Government during a live radio program.

It is worth noting that the Department of State Security Services, Kano Command, had previously arrested the defendant and transferred the case to the Kano Command for prosecution.

The defendant was arraigned before the court by Barrister Abdussalam Saleh Danmaidaki from the Legal Department of Kano Police.

During the arraignment, the prosecution stated that the offense contravened section 114 of the Penal Code Law.

However, Danbilki Kwamanda denied committing the offense.
