Senator Shehu Sani says the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai is responsible for the attack on his campaign office in Kaduna on Saturday morning.
Gunmen had attacked the office on Saturday morning, but the quick arrival of the police prevented the building from being set ablaze.
Sani, in a statement on his facebook said el-Rufai should be held responsible for the attack.
According to Sani, he received a report that some heavily armed thugs raided and attacked his constituency office located at Stadium Roundabout by Constitution Road, Kaduna and unleashed terror on his social media team who were meeting in the office as they vandalized the office in their violent act.
“Some few minutes ago I received a report that some heavily armed thugs raided and attacked my constituency office located at Stadium Roundabout by constitution Road Kaduna.They unleashed terror on my Social media team who were meeting in the office.They vandalized the office in their violent act.
“We have the lead and the information that thugs were fully recruited and paid by political appointees of Governor Nasiru Elrufai. We have the names of the political appointees and we have the names of those they are funding.Right now their details are given to the DSS and the police for investigation,” he said.
Sani said two days ago, attempt to burn down his Family house in Alkalawa Road,Tudun Wada Kaduna by sponsored thugs was thwarted by vigilant residents and neighbours,which led to the brief deployment of policemen in the area.
“I wish to state it categorically clear that I hold Governor Nasiru Elrufai personally responsible for whatever happens to me or any of my family members or supporters. After the use of financial inducement on APC Excos in the state to silence Shehu Sani in the name of suspension, which never worked, they have now taken the road of violence.
“The Governor of the state or his desperate political appointees should know that we can never ever be silenced, coward or intimidated.I call on my supporters never to take the road of violence or retaliation.
“We are men of ideas, of ideals and of peace.Those who take to the road of violence have no place in a democratic society,” he said.
