Kano - Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje on Wednesday alleged that the political pressure group, Kwankwassiya led by former governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has allegedly hired thugs to disrupt next Saturday’s state House of Assembly by-election in Minjibir, reports PM News.

Ganduje through the state commissioner of information, Youth, Sports and culture, Muhammad Garba in a press statement in Kano, said supporters of Kwankwasiyya group have orchestrated plans to unleashed mayhem during the rescheduled election by allegedly hired thugs.

Garba claimed that information at the state government disposal suggested that “Kwankwasiyya group has hired thugs from neighboring country of Niger Republic and states of Katsina and Jigawa state to unleash Mayhem on Inocent and law abiding electorates, with the aim of scuttling the entire process for his selfish reasons.”

He then revealed that “we have received credible information that the Kwankwasiyya group, knowing fully that their anti- party intention will fail has resorted to hiring of thugs from the republic of Niger and neighboring states of Katsina and Jigawa state. We have learnt on good authority that the thugs imported are armed to the teeth.

“We want to warn that as a responsible government we will not sit down and fold our hands for some disgruntle elements to cause chaos in the state and destroyed the relative peace in state.

“We have informed the security agencies of this nefarious plan, we will support them to protect lives and property of law abiding citizens. As a responsible government we will not be party to any process that is undemocratic and unlawful.” The statement warned.
