Sen. Abu Ibrahim (APC Katsina south) and Alhaji Amiru Tukur (APC Katsina), member representing Bakori/Danja Federal constituency narrowly escaped mob action at a political event organised by Katsina state chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday in Funtua.

It took combined teams of security personnel to rescue notable politicians including the governors’ entourage.

Some vehicles in the entourage of the governor were smashed by irate youths while tear-gas was used to disperse the crowds by the security personnel.

NAN reports that the event was part of APC rally where the ruling party was accepting those defecting from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) and Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) among others but it ended abruptly.

The irate youths were chanting ”Bamaso Abu Ibrahim’’ and throwing stones and shoes at dignitaries and entertainers invited to perform  at the event.

Amiru Tukur sustained injury while Abu Ibrahim, along with some of his aides and supporters, who were trying to rescue the senator, were also assaulted.
