BY ABDULGAFAR OLADIMEJI, Kano –
Kano State governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje yesterday pledged to work in collaboration with security agencies to apprehend the perpetrators of the mayhem at Kano Emir’s Palace, where over 20 persons suffered various degrees of injuries.
Our correspondents reports that last Saturday evening, bandits invaded the traditional Hawan Daushe, at Kofar Kudu, at the Emir’s Palace..
This was contained in a statement signed by the state commissioner of Information, Youth and Culture, Malam Muhamad Garba. While commiserating with those injured during the dastardly act, the governor said upon completion of investigation by the police, those arrested would be arraigned before the court of law.
He further said the wrath of the law will descend on any individual or group of persons indicted for masterminding the act.
He said that the state government is informed of the intentions of some hoodlums to further cause mayhem in the state, adding that the radar of security agencies is watching over their movements and would not hesitate to apply the instrument of law to ensure peace and stability in the state.
Reacting on the incident, Kwankwassiya Movement, a factional group within APC claimed that the victims of the attack are adherents and disciplines of their movement.
Former commissioner for Water Resources, Dr Yunusa Dangwani, who also served as chief of staff to erstwhile Kano State governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso alleged that the perpetrators were acting under incitement.
He accused, the incumbent governor, of uttering hate speeches that ignited the attack. According to him, Governor Ganduje on August 24th, while addressing a rally held to commiserate the safe return of President Muhammadu Buhari from his medical vacation in the UK used the platform to verbally assault the Kwankwassiyya movement and the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for failing to recognise the congress organised by the faction loyal to the state governor.
He disclosed that prominent among those allegedly injured were the former secretary to the state government, Rabiu Bichi, former commissioners namely, Yunusa Dangwani, Yusuf Bello Dambatta, Yahya Musa Kwankwaso, Comrade Baba Umaru and Zainab Audu Bako.
