Hoodlums have attacked supporters of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Kano, Thursday afternoon on their way to welcome the party’s presidential candidate, Rabi’u Kwankwaso.
At least ten vehicles of the NNPP’s Kwankwasiya movement have been vandalized among which three were burned to ashes.
An eyewitness Tasiu Lawan told WikkiTimes he escaped death as hundreds of thugs attacked them and wounded many people.
According to him, many people have been injured while vehicles were vandalized.
Kwankwaso was billed to hold his grand finale campaign in Kano where he enjoys massive turnout.
Earlier in the morning, Kano State Police Command through its spokesperson, Abdullahi Kiyawa, advised the trio of All Progressives Congress, Peoples Democratic Party and New Nigeria Peoples Party to put on hold their planned rallies in Kano due to the possible clash between their supporters.
Attempts to reach Kiyawa proved abortive at press time.
