Gunmen yesterday invaded the campaign
office of the human rights activist and
senator representing Kaduna Central District,
Shehu Sani, during a meeting of his
supporters..

The attack, which caught the supporters
unaware, left sour tales in their mouth, as
many of them were wounded, while others
lost some valuables, including handsets to the
invaders.

Senior Special Adviser (Political and
Ideology) to Senator Sani, Comrade Suleiman
Ahmed said the attack was the continuation
of earlier attacks on the family house of the
lawmaker at Tudun Wada, Kaduna.
He said the information gathered from the
victims of the attack indicated that the
hoodlums must have been on the move to
complete “the plot, which started inside
Kaduna State Government House three days
earlier.”
According to Comrade Ahmed: “They are just
jealous of senator’s political achievement.
But then, that will not deter the senator from
listening to the people and put their interest
above the party or personal interest.”

“They started on Friday. They laid siege to
the senator’s family house on Friday before
the police came and dispatched them, using
teargas. This Saturday (yesterday) afternoon
again, they attacked his constituency office
around stadium roundabout. I was informed
that the attackers, who were armed, stormed
the office, where some people were having
meeting and destroyed what they could and
collected their phones and all that. We have
called the police to put the situation under
control.”
Police Spokesman in the State, ASP Usman
Aliyu could not but reached, as his phone was
switched off. However, a detachment of
armed policemen has taken over the
constituency office of the lawmaker, as they
kept vigil there.

Political Adviser to the Governor, Mallam
Ubah Sani denied the involvement of the
state government in the attack, saying that
anyone who linked officials of the state
government to it was just indulging in
blackmail.
“Let anyone come out and tell the world
whether he saw any government official at
the scene. People are just trying to blackmail
the state government,” he said.
The Senator, who had just returned from a
foreign trip confirmed the attack on his
constituency office, saying “Some minutes
ago I received a report that some heavily
armed thugs raided and attacked my office
located at Stadium Roundabout by
Constitution Road, Kaduna. They unleashed
terror on members of my social media team
who were meeting in the office. They
vandalized the office in their violent act.
“We have the lead and the information that
thugs were fully recruited and paid by
political appointees of Governor Nasiru El-
Rufai. We have the names of the political
appointees and we have the names of those
they are funding. Right now their details
have been given to the Department of State
Security and the police for investigation.
“Two days ago attempt to burn down my
family house in Alkalawa Road, Tudun Wada
Kaduna by sponsored thugs, was thwarted by
vigilant residents and neighbours. This led to
the brief deployment of policemen in the
area.

“I wish to state it categorically clear, that I
hold Governor Nasiru El-Rufai personally
responsible for whatever happens to me or
any of my family members or supporters.”
