At least 17 people were injured on Saturday when a group of people suspected of being political thugs launched an attack on the campaign motorcade of the candidate for the Kano central senatorial seat of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Abdussalam Abdulkarim. The victims’ injuries ranged from minor to severe.

The sad occurrence that took place in Gayawa village in the Ungogo local government area of Kano disrupted the tranquillity of the sleeping community for several hours, forcing locals to scramble for safety in order to protect themselves.

The ugly trend that resulted in more than ten campaign vehicles being vandalized left no reports of life-threatening casualties; however, eyewitnesses revealed that a senatorial candidate affectionately called AA Zaura narrowly escaped the attack unhurt in the ugly trend that left more than ten campaign vehicles vandalized.

AA Zaura’s media assistant, Ibrahim Mua’azzam, has confirmed the event and said that the incident occurred when the senatorial candidate was travelling back from a visit to pay his condolences.

Even though Ibrahim mentioned that those responsible for the heinous act are going to be found, he claimed that an independent evaluation revealed that there were 17 children and three significant casualties, most of them are currently being treated at the Murtala Muhammad Specialists Hospital.

He claimed that it is true that Zaura’s motorcade was attached around Gadar Katako, which is a village that borders both Ungogo and Nassarawa local government regions. He said that Gadar Katako is located in the Nassarawa local government area. Zaura has issued an appeal for calm despite the fact that the perpetrators have not been identified.

According to the first findings of our investigation into the harm caused by this malicious act, there have been 17 people who have suffered either minor or significant injuries. The majority of the most serious injuries have been sent to the Murtala Muhammad Specialists Hospital for treatment. In addition to that, we have had 17 cars damaged.

In addition, he stated that Zaura want to reassure the victims of the assault that they would be provided for in every way possible. “We can also ensure you that all legal measures will be used against the offender, and I can tell you that they will be brought to account,” Mua’azzam remarked. “We can also assure you that we will bring all of our resources to bear on them.”

In the meantime, the Director-General of the AA Zaura Campaign organization, Hon. Yahaya Adamu Garin Ali has petitioned the Kano state Police Command to demand a comprehensive inquiry into the attack that was carried out on the campaign coney of the senatorial candidate.

In a petition dated December 17th, 2022 and sent to the Commissioner of Police, a copy of which was made accessible to journalists, Garin Ali issued a challenge to the police, demanding that they reveal who committed the crime and quickly begin prosecuting them.

Because we have trust that the authorities would act justly, we have requested our supporters to maintain their composure as they await the conclusion of the inquiry being conducted by the police. Says Garin Ali.

The phone line of the spokesman for the command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, was switched off when he was called, thus our attempts to talk with the police about the situation were unsuccessful.
