A Kaduna Chief Magistrate’s Court on Thursday ordered the arrest of a former ANPP governorship candidate in Katsina in 2003, Alhaji Muhammad Kahlil, for alleged cheating and breach of trust.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Joyce Kaka, had summoned the accused three times but he failed to appear before the court.

She said the court found it necessary to issue the warrant of arrest because of the difficulties encountered in getting him.

Kahlil was alleged to have purchased motorcycles and bicycles at N1.7 million from Muntunchi Pride Nigeria Ltd. during the 2003 gubernatorial campaign but defaulted in payment.
