Abu Ibrahim, the senator representing Katsina south, and Amiru Tukur, member representing Bakori/Danja in the house of representatives were reportedly attacked at a political event organised by the state chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday.
According to an eyewitness who pleaded anonymity, those who attacked the senator are from his senatorial district, saying the senator offence is that he doesn’t used to come home, he is against Buhari policies among other.
"Senator Abu Ibrahim doesn’t come home and he is against Buhari policies. We have already promised that whenever he comes back, we must deal with him".
"When the state governor brought this occasion, he begged for its relocation from funtua, that’s our local government to Sabuwa local government so that we from Funtua will not follow them. The governor said no, let them do it here to see their fans". He said.
He also said that they were informed in the Jumaat mosque not to misbehave, but they didn’t care, adding that they have to fulfil their mission.
"They brought more soldiers, but, we were not afraid, we even broke their vehicles, including that of the governor because the senator entered the governor motor".
"The rep was wounded, he is still in the hospital, I pity Amiru, rep for Bakori/Danja, they break en head well well", he concluded.
