Popular Hausa singer, Ado Daukaka, who was kidnapped and released earlier this week, has now being questioned by police for allegedly defaming a politician. Ado was abducted and kept in a forest for five days during which his captors threatened to kill him if he goes on with his music.
Adamawa state House of Assembly member Suleiman Umar Alkali asked police to investigate the allegation that Ado dented his image in his latest widely-circulated song Gyara Kayanka (Let us do the right thing) which is about how politicians abandon the people after getting elected.
The MP told the BBC that though his name was not mentioned in the song he felt there was insinuation about his performance in office.
The singer has been granted bail and was asked to report to the police on Monday.
