Senator Shehu Sani, in his reaction to the incident that happened on Saturday at his campaign office in Kaduna, accused the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, as the cause of the attack.
Report indicated that policemen intervened immediately which apparently prevented any casualties during the attack.
Senator Shehu’s statement after the attack reads below;
“Some few minutes ago I received a report that some heavily armed thugs raided and attacked my constituency office located at Stadium Roundabout by Constitution Road, Kaduna.
“They unleashed terror on my social media team whom where 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,” He said
“We have the names of the political appointees and we have the names of those they are funding. Right now their details are given to the SSS 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 neighbors, which led to the brief deployment of policemen in the area.”
“I wish to state it categorically clear that I hold Governor Nasiru Elrufai personally responsible for whatever happens to me or any of my family members or supporters.
“After the use of financial inducement on APC executive committee in the state to silence Shehu Sani in the name of suspension, which never worked,they have now taken the road of violence.
“We are men of ideas, of ideals and of peace. Those who take to the road of violence have no place in a democratic society.”
