Thugs yesterday disrupted what would have been the formal launch of the Kaduna campaign office of the former Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido.
The armed thugs invaded the Rabah Road venue of the launch brandishing dangerous weapons and inflicted injuries on some of his supporters who had turned up for the event.
This happened shortly after Lamido’s addres to his supporters in which he accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration and President Muhammadu Buhari of poor handling of the nation’s social, political and economic affairs.
He said, “Today, there is instability in Nigeria because our chemistry cannot blend. We are busy maligning each other, dehumanizing each other and abusing each other. Nigerian government will mock you if you complain. We have been demonized because of our opinion. We will not succumb because this is our country. We shall revive Nigeria. So, I am telling you the youths that the future is yours. I will not tolerate any youth smoking marijuana, brandishing swords or cutlasses or any weapons. Today Nigeria is basically gone because our chemistry is not blending. There is so much hate and persecution that you are only accepted as a Nigerian if you are in APC.”
