Former Governor of Kano State and the immediate past Senator representing Kano Central, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso escaped been lynched in Kano on Monday after heavy armed thugs attacked him.
Kwankwaso was attacked by thugs around Sharada Panshekara Sabon Titi bridge on Monday October 21. Hajiya Binta Sipikin, Kwankwaso’s media aide who alleged that the attack was carried out by thugs loyal to Governor Umar Ganduje, said 8 people were injured during the violent attack in which many cars were destroyed.
She said, “This attack was preplanned because we were told that heavy armed thugs were waiting under the bridge to attack us when we were coming from Madobi.
“We believe Ganduje was behind this attack because we heard one of his aide names being mentioned during the attack.”
The attack was said to have happened after the former governor had paid a visit to his hometown, Madobi, where he opened a midwifery school.
Eight persons were said to have been critically injured while several cars were badly damaged.
She said: “This attack was preplanned because we were told that the heavy armed thugs were kept under the bridge to attack us as we were returning from Madobi.”
