Gunmen attack Kaduna Senator, Shehu Sani’s campaign office.

The campaign office of the senator representing Kaduna Central District, Shehu Sani, has been attacked by unknown gunmen, the police said.

Suleiman Sule, the senator’s aide, said some supporters of the lawmaker were meeting at the campaign office on Saturday when armed men invaded the property.

There were immediate reports of casualties.

“Police officers have already cordoned the office area,” Mr. Sule told PREMIUM TIMES.

Residents of the area said the attackers came in large numbers.

“They were all with dangerous weapons and all headed across the road where Shehu Sani’s office was. They dispersed some people who were holding meeting in the office,” one resident said. “Thank God it is a busy area and there is always the presence of police officers. Before it could get out of hand they thugs ran away.”

A police spokesperson who identified himself as Abba Danjuma, an Inspector, confirmed the incident, but called for clam.

“The Kaduna police are on top of the situation as our officers have arrived the scene and investigation has begun. There was also no report of casualty at the moment,” the police said.

Mr. Sani has been enmeshed in a running political battle with Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State.

Last week, a faction of the party loyal to the governor announced the indefinite suspension of the Senator.

Mr. Sani fought back calling the governor a “dubious progressive”.
