APC senatorial candidate attacked, 16
vehicles destroyed in southern Kaduna

The senatorial candidate of the All
Progressives Congress in Southern
Kaduna Zone of Kaduna state, Ishaku
Shekarau, was on Saturday attacked
by thugs in Fadan Kagoma, Jema’a
local government area of the state.
Samuel Aruwan, the spokesperson of
Kaduna State APC Campaign
Council said this in a statement made
available to newsmen Saturday in
Kaduna.

Mr. Shekarau, in company with APC
stalwarts, was in the town to attend
the annual Gwong Day celebration
when he was attacked by the thugs
who wielded dangerous weapons.
Mr. Aruwan claimed the attackers
chanted PDP slogans at the venue,
but that could not be
confirmed

Mr. Shekarau’s personal car was
however also smashed by the
hoodlums.
Explaining how the attack happened,
Mr. Shekarau said: “On getting to the
venue, I was subjected to thorough
security check. Suddenly hoodlums
started attacking me with clubs and
dangerous weapons.

“I escaped but they destroyed 16 cars
belonging to our party and my bullet-
proof car.
“The security personnel saw all that
transpired and none of them tried to
repel the hoodlums who were brought
to Southern Kaduna in droves.

“It is quite unfortunate and
condemnable. How can such a thing
be allowed by a government that said
it wants peace? It is a clear case of
inciting violence and intimidation in
the name of politics.”
