JUST IN: Kano APC Factional Office Set Ablaze

Kano APC
Campaign office of Barau Jibril, a key member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano state, has been razed by thugs. 

Gatekeepers News reports that the faction of the ruling party was set ablaze in the early hours of Thursday.

Jibril, a senator representing Kano North senatorial district, belongs to the Kano APC faction loyal to Ibrahim Shekarau, a former governor of the state. The razed building serves as the meeting point of the faction.

An eyewitness said armed thugs invaded the building, vandalised it, and proceeded to set it ablaze.

The arsonists are alleged to be members of the faction loyal to Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano.

However, it is unclear what triggered the arson but the two factions have been at loggerheads for some time.

The crisis of the APC in Kano worsened after parallel congresses were held by both factions on October 18.

The Shekarau faction had elected Haruna Danzago as chairman while Ganduje’s camp elected Abdullahi Abbas.

An appeal committee set up by the national caretaker committee recognised the faction loyal to Ganduje.

The Shekarau faction has since instituted a case in court challenging the decision of the national caretaker committee.

The faction also asked the court to nullify the congresses at wards, LGAs, and state levels.
