Mr. Abdullahi Sanusi, the Kano State Commissioner of Special Duties, has reportedly asked his supporters to stone a former Governor of the State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State who succeeded Kwankwaso in 2015 had been at logger heads for some time now with the former governor.
Ex-Governor Kwankwaso, now a senator representing Kano Central, who was a founding member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is among some aggrieved party members one of which is former Vice President Atiku Abubakar who had to resign and decamp to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Senator Kwankwaso had been urged by the opposition PDP to return back to the party as they search for the next presidential candidate for 2019.
Sanusi’s alleged suggestion to his supporters was reportedly seen in an unverified video he is yet to confirm or reject.
According to him in the video, Kwankwaso is the “political satan of Kano”, he further reportedly went ahead to confess organizing previous attacks against the former governor.
“From today, the whistle of politics is blown on our in-house opposition. We met in Minjibir and dealt with them (Kwankwaso’s supporters); we met outside the emir’s palace during the Sallah celebration (there was clash at Emir of Kano’s palace between Kwankwasiyya and Gandujiyya supporters) and they tasted our wrath.
“Now their leader (Kwankwaso) is coming and we will receive him at kwanar Dangora or at Dakatsalle, you may be aware after the holy pilgrimage performed by Muslims is the symbolic stoning of Satan; so you all should await official announcement of the day you will all be directed to stone the political Satan of Kano. We are not afraid of anybody; we will even take the battle to his (Kwankwaso’s) room. Finally, my counterparts, let’s work to destroy Kwankwaso, as you all know he is afraid of us,” he said.
