Gunmen allegedly connected to Governor Nasir El-Raufai, on Sunday, stormed the residence of Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani.
This is coming just few days after the Senator’s office was attacked by unknown gunmen.
Senior Special Adviser (Political and Ideology) to the Senator, Ahmed Suleiman, made the disclosure on Sunday.
The Senator was said to be hosting some members of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), who were on solidarity visit to him when the gunmen attacked his residence and carted away valuables from the visitors.
Sani has reportedly accused Governor El-Rufai of sponsoring the said attacks.
“Some names that are linked with the adviser to the Kaduna State Governor on Youth are surfacing,” Suleiman said.
“Those that attacked the senator’s office few days ago are also linked to the governor.”
Suleiman further refuted reports that his boss had also sponsored an attack on the APC office on Ali Akilu Road in Kaduna State.
“That the All Progressives Congress Kaduna Secretariat was attacked by thugs loyal to the senator representing Kaduna Central District, Comrade Shehu Sani, is mere fabrications cooked and dished out by one Aza Msue, a correspondent of National Mirror Newspapers,” he said.
“I was dumb founded when I saw that he was even using my name in the fabricated report.
“I sent camera to the venue of the meeting and supporters only raised placards protesting the wrong decisions.
“Same cannot be said on the attack of our office, where the Commissioner of Police was there to see the damage for himself.
“We are happy that the attackers of our office have been traced and there is investigation ongoing.”
