The Kannywood star actress, Hadiza Gabon, has discredited a report by LEADERSHIP Hausa newspaper claiming that she was arrested by the men of the Nigeria Police Force in Kano.
Recall that Ms Gabon was sued before the Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Kano by a Kannywood actor, Mustapha Nabraska, over an alleged assault.
The Chief Magistrate Muntari Dandago had recently ordered the Kano state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Wakili, to arrest Ms Gabon over her alleged refusal to honour court’s invitation.
However, speaking with newsmen in Kano, the Kannywood star expressed her dismay over the false report, saying that such a report was fabricated to smear her image.
The actress added that the report was nothing but hateful, mean and misleading in all ramifications.
According to her, the report was calculated attempt by her detractors to portray her in a bad light before the eyes of the public.
“I wasn’t arrested by the police, the report making rounds was nothing but malicious and fallacious in all its ramifications and a calculated attempt to portray me in a bad light.
“As I speak with you, I have reconciled with Nabraska, who took me to court, so I wonder where the story of my arrest came from. The court has since set aside the order,” she said.
Ms Gabon also deflated part of the story which says that she knelt down before Nabraska to seek forgiveness and withdrew the suit against her.
“That story is nothing but fake, I didn’t kneel before him (Nabraska); we sat down, discussed and resolved our differences amicably out of court,” she said.
