Armed Hoodlums Attack Senator Shehu Sani’s Office, Attempt on His Aide’s life


Armed hoodlums in their tens Saturday morning attacked Kaduna Constituency Office of Senator Shehu Sani destroying property and made attempt on the life of Abdulsamad Chima Amadi, Personal Assistant on Special Duties to the Senator.
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 who saw it happened 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 went towards same direction.
The Vendor who identified himself simply as Adamu said the weapons brandished by the youth scared many people leading to stampedes that saw many injured in the process of trying to escape from the hoodlums.
Another eyewitness who trades goods close to the office who pleaded anonymity for the fear of what the youth could do, 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 told New Nigerian Newspapers that the hoodlums actually came for him.
Abdulsamad said he was in the inner chamber of the office and saw the hoodlums wreck the havoc with one of them holding a Pistol and asking of his whereabouts.
He said it was a grace of God that save him as the hoodlums were really prepared to mow him to death. “We are here to officially report the case to the Police” he stressed.
It would be recalled that on Friday 2nd December, 2016, some youth led a protest to the resident of the Senator’s late mother with attempt to touch it. It took the prompt intervention of the police to disperse them using tear gass as an opposing group mobilise 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. The Special Adviser Political to Governor el-rufai, Uba Sani has always being pointed as the brain behind attacks on the Senator and his supporters.
When contacted, Kaduna Command of the Nigerian Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Usman Aliyu said he was in transit and would get back to our reporter later with details.
