Senators escape mob attack in Kaduna

Two Nigerian senators, Shehu Sani and Suleiman Hunkuyi, were on Sunday attacked by suspected thugs during a press briefing in Kaduna and some journalists escaped being mobbed by hoodlums who invaded the venue where the two senators are expected to address a press conference.

Mr. Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central, confirmed the development to this newspaper this afternoon. He alleged the attackers were sponsored by Kaduna State Government.

Mr. Sani said he and Mr. Hunkuyi, Kaduna North, had organized the press conference over alleged “manipulation of the party (APC in the state)” by Governor Nasir El-Rufai with whom he has been having a running political battle.
The lawmaker said journalists were also attacked and that one of them was in a hospital.
