Kano State’s former governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has been attacked by yet to be identified thugs in Kano today, during a visit to his home town, Madobi where he had gone to open a midwifery school.
The attack which was said to have been carried out around the state underpass had eight persons critically injured, and several cars were damaged beyond recognition.
Naija News learnt however that the attack has been linked to loyalists of Governor Abdulahi Ganduje.
This was stated by Hajiya Binta Sipikin, Kwankwaso’s media aide,
She said, “This attack was preplanned because we were told that heavy-armed thugs were waiting under the bridge to attack us when we were coming from Madobi.
“We believe Ganduje was behind this attack because we heard one of his aide names being mentioned during the attack.”
However, one of the Governor’s top aides, who pleaded anonymousity denied that the attack was from Ganduje’s loyalist, adding that it was as a result of an internal wrangling between the Kwankwasiyya members who were apparently tired of their boss, Kwankwaso.
