Senator Escapes Assassination Attempt During APC Meeting In Kaduna (Photos)



Thugs, armed with machete and other guns on Sunday disrupted a meeting convened by Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi with members of the All Progressives Congress from Kaduna Central Senatorial District at NUT Endwell Hotel.

The meeting attended by representatives from each of the local governments and the district was at  being rounded up when some thugs, numbering about ten stormed the venue, breaking car windshields before policemen shot into the air to disperse them.
But party faithfuls who had converged on the conference hall of the hotel scampered for safety and the meeting came to an abrupt end.


Five persons sustained injuries and were moved to Barau Dikko hospital before the police quickly moved in to disperse the thugs.

Senator Hunkuyi had last week met with party faithfuls from the Kaduna south senatorial district in Kafanchan where he promised to reinstate teachers and district heads sacked by the Kaduna state government.
