6 Injured As Kwankwaso, Ganduje Supporters Clash In Kano
No fewer than six people were on Sunday injured in Kano following a clash between supporters of Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, former governor of Kano State and Abdullahi Ganduje, the incumbent.
It was gathered that some members of the two groups were at the area to attend two separate wedding ceremonies when the incident happened.
The clash is coming a week after a commissioner in the state called on residents to attack Kwankwaso.
In a video that trended online, Abdullahi Abbas, the Commissioner for Special Duties, had asked Kano residents to stone the former governor when he visits the state.
Kwankwaso and Ganduje, both of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have been at loggerheads since the latter assumed office.
Sunday’s clash, which occurred close to the late Galadima Kano House, left six people injured, including a step brother of Abdullahi Abbas, Walid Abbas Sunusi (Walidiyya Kwankwaso) who is a staunch supporter Kwankwaso.
The injured were immediately rushed to the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital.
Reacting to the development, a supporter of the Kwankwasiyya group and former Organising Secretary of the APC in Kano, Sunusi Surajo Kwankwaso, attributed the fight to negligence by the security agents.
“It’s surprising that Abbas has not been arrested or invited by the security agents over his comments calling for violence that was even reported in the media, said Surajo Kwankwaso.
He said called on residents to protect themselves if the law enforcement agents cannot do so.
Sunusi Surajo Kwankwaso noted that they are meeting with the elders of their group to take a position on the attack.
The spokesman of Kano State Police Command, Magaji Musa Majia, said the command had commenced investigation into the issue to ensure that the perpetrators of the crisis are brought to book.
