Fadila Abdulrahman, a resident of Maiduguri, was on Sunday evening reportedly ‘brutalized’ by suspected hoodlums over a ‘scathing’ Facebook post she made about Hon. Ahmad Satomi Grema, a lawmaker representing Jere Federal Constituency in Borno State.
This came after the victim expressed displeasure with the leadership of the Borno lawmaker.
The thugs, armed with clubs, sticks, and other lethal weapons, also vandalized her business shop.
In a recorded video of the attack, the leader of the thugs was heard saying he was ready to sacrifice his life should anyone verbally attack his ‘political master.
He threatened to kill her if she ever criticized the lawmaker publicly again.
“Be careful. Otherwise, we will just waste you,” he said.
A source who witnessed the incident told newsmen that the attack was organized by a loyalist of the legislator who is the manager of a recreational area.
“The attack was planned and orchestrated by the Manager of Sanda Kyarimi Recreational Park in Maiduguri popularly known as A Donbest Abatcha.
“He invited Sa’adu Suleiman Nakande, a loyalist of Hon Satomi and other thugs to attack the innocent girl at her shop at about 5pm.
“DonBest also ordered the thugs to destroy her Restaurant, nearly a month after he gave her the space to Operate.”
