President Buhari’s Aide Escaped Assassination Attempt

The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly Matters (House of Representatives) and senatorial aspirant for Kano South senatorial district, Alhaji Abdulrahman Kawu Sumaila raised the alarm over threat to his life by agents of his political opponent, Senator Kabiru Gaya.

During an emergency press briefing held at NUJ Kano Press Centre yesterday, Kawu alleged that a former Chairman of Sumaila Local Government Area (LGA) and campaign Director of Senator Kabiru Gaya, Alhaji Abdulhamid Idris Rimi, led a group of unknown persons who stormed Sumaila ward and attempted to attack him, while he was addressing over 3000 All Progressives Congress (APC) supporters who had gathered for the direct governorship primaries of the party in the state.

He said eight armed unknown men approached him at the All Progressive Congress (APC)’s Sumaila ward office where the party primaries was taking place and tried to attack him with dangerous weapons.

He further stated that the police later arrested two of the suspects, including Senator Kabiru Gaya’s campaign Director who are currently at Sumaila police station.
