Armed hoodlums in their tens Saturday morning attacked the Kaduna Constituency Office of Senator Shehu Sani, destroying property and making an attempt on the life of his Personal Assistant on Special Duties, Abdulsamad Chima Amadi.

The attack occurred when members of the social media team of the Senator were having a meeting at the office located at No 1 Junction Road by Stadium Roundabout, Kaduna.

An eyewitness narrated that the youth with cudgels, machetes, sticks – among other dangerous weapons – went to the first floor of the building chanting “ina shegen?” (meaning where is the bastard?) in Hausa, dispersed those meeting and broke anything breakable in the office.

A newspaper vendor who witnessed the incident said the boys came from the side of Cabala Costain and after the attack also left through the same direction.

The vendor, who simply identified himself as Adamu, said the weapons brandished by the youth scared many, leading to stampede that saw many injured in the process of trying to escape.

Another eyewitness who trades goods close to the office said what surprised them was that as the pandemonium happened, a police van with personnel was packed across the road and the men watched without any attempt to disperse or apprehend the hoodlums.

At Magajin Gari Police Station, Kaduna North Local Government Area where Abdulsamad Chima Amadi went to report the case, he said that the hoodlums actually came for him.

Abdulsamad said he was in the inner chamber of the office and saw the hoodlums wreak the havoc with one of them holding a pistol and asking of his whereabouts.

He said it was the grace of God that saved him as the hoodlums were really prepared to mow him down. “We are here to officially report the case to the police,” he stressed.

It would be recalled that yesterday, some youths led a protest to the residence of the Senator’s late mother with the intention to torch it. It took the prompt intervention of the police to disperse them, using teargas as an opposing group mobilised to save the house by confronting the first one.   

The frosty relationship between Senator Shehu Sani and Governor Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai is getting worse on daily basis, with accusations and counter accusations.

When contacted, Kaduna Command of the Nigerian Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) ASP Usman Aliyu, said he was on transit and would get back to our reporter later with details.
