Political crisis escalated as suspected hoodlums invaded the house of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate in Kano, Abba Kabiru Yusuf and set it ablaze.
The building recently converted into a political office located around Chiranchi quarters in Gwale Local Government area of Kano State was reportedly burnt with property worth millions of naira destroyed.
The hoodlums who said to have taken the advantage of PDP presidential activities on Sunday to perpetrate the act were still at large.
Meanwhile, the spokesman of the PDP gubernatorial candidate in Kano, Sanusi Bature has accused the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) of sponsoring the dastardly act.
Sanusi in a statement alleged that the hoodlums numbering over sixty were led by one Juinaidu Abdulhamid, who is a Personal Assistant to the State APC Chairman Abdullahi Abbas, to carry out the burning of the house.
According to Sanusi, ” the thugs set the house ablaze and razed it down to ashes and vandalized 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, Kano.
“The same APC thugs went 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 on the 2019 election peace accord.”
