Suspected hoodlums have invaded the house of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate in Kano, Abba Kabiru Yusuf, and set it ablaze.
This came barely 24 hours after violence forced the presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State to be hurriedly brought to an end.
The building, which was recently converted into a political office and is located around Chiranchi quarters in Gwale Local Government area of Kano State was reportedly burnt and property worth millions of naira destroyed.
It was learnt that the hoodlums who took advantage of the PDP presidential campaign activities on Sunday to perpetrate the criminal act are still at large.
The spokesman of the PDP gubernatorial candidate in Kano, Sanusi Bature, accused the ruling APC of sponsoring the dastardly act.
Bature, in a statement, alleged that the over 60 hoodlums led by a personal assistant to a top political figure in the state carried out the burning of the house.
“The thugs set the house ablaze and vandalised a Volkswagen Golf – III model with registration number NSR 237 AE. The same thugs were those who attacked the Kwankwasiyya leaders and their supporters during an annual Eid durbar of Hawan Daushe at the Kofar Kudu of the Emir’s Palace in Kano.
“The same APC thugs go on a rampage, destroying all PDP formations in the state anytime they are out for political rallies despite the fact that Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje appended his signature to the 2019 election peace accord,” he said.
The Kano PDP urged the police and other security agencies to, as a matter of urgency, discharge their responsibility with utmost fairness and objectivity to ensure that those who burnt Yusuf’s property are brought to book.
