The statement also condemned the attack, saying there is growing incidences of political thuggery and intimidation on the members of opposition.

He said such criminality “orchestrated by Ganduje’s administration has regrettably become a trend to crush and silence the opposition.”

“We wish to go on record that immediately we heard about state government’s plans on the attack, the leadership of Kwankwasiyya got in touch with the security agencies but they did nothing to forestall the incidence,” said the statement.

The statement therefore called on the President Muhammadu Buhari to as a matter of responsibility take an urgent action to curtail the ugly trend that portrays serious danger to democracy.
