APC Chairman, Bature Masari, yesterday February 8th, escaped a mob attack.

The mob, believed to be supporters of a politician who defected to the party on Thursday, were said to be angry at the chairman’s remarks at the occasion.

Bature Masari and hundreds of his supporters earlier decamped to the APC from the opposition PDP.

In his speech at the occasion held at the Government House, Katsina, Shittu expressed doubt about the genuineness of the defectors.

“I did not know Masari very well; I knew you campaigned against us when we were in the struggle in 2015. I hope you have not come here to deceive us and then go away,” he said.
