Two Nigerian senators, Shehu Sani and Suleiman Hunkuyi, were on Sunday attacked by suspected thugs during a press briefing in Kaduna, witnesses told PREMIUM TIMES.

Mr. Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central, confirmed the development to this newspaper this afternoon. He alleged the attackers were sponsored by Kaduna State Government. PREMIUM TIMES could not ascertain that claim.

Mr. Sani said he and Mr. Hunkuyi, Kaduna North, had organized the press conference over alleged “manipulation of the party (APC in the state)” by Governor Nasir El-Rufai with whom he has been having a running political battle.

The lawmaker said journalists were also attacked and that one of them was in a hospital.

      Why allowing the trash on your newspaper.
      The fake logo and name should’ve ring a bell.
      Premium times wake up.

      • Frank Bassey

        WHAT IS “TRASH” HERE, FOR GOODNESS SAKE. Ed, please wake up.

  • ed

    El Rufai is the most dangerous animal around.
    He’s ready to kill anyone for his political agenda. Unfortunately Buhari and Osinbajo can’t control him.

  • Zygote

    I think we need more this. but they should leave the journalist alone.

  • Frank Bassey

    Alhaji Nasir el-Rufai is afraid of Senator Shehu Sani’s towering national image. Sani is cool headed, mature, open, competent, humble, intelligent and focus. For me, this is the ONLY useful material the North has for now. I advise him not to give us. He accepted the party’s plea to leave the Governorship seat for over-rated El-rufi and go to the Senate. Thank God he obeyed. It is now obvious that El-Rufai engage in arrogance and abusive words to hide his incompetence and other poor leadership qualities. El-Rufai means FAILURE.

    • Engr Habu

      You are an uneducated villager who never made tour of the north, thus assumed and believed every nonsense you read about the north. Check records El-Rufai is a genius, made a First Class degree in quantity surveying and also masters degree holder from Harvard.

      • Joey_i60

        Really? His track record in FCDA does not scream genius. Please kindly confirm which QS body he belongs to locally or internationally? What scores did he get in those exams before you start to throw the word “Genius” about. Please also note that for every educated “El Rufai” in the North, one Ekiti hamlet can throw up a dozen better educated people. For the record, I am not Yoruba. I simply abhor mediocrity.

        • Engr Habu

          Are you by any means trying to tell me that Professor Jibril Aminu is Yoruba by origin? He has not gotten anybody up till date who broke his record in university of Ibadan college of medicine. It’s only a myopic thinker that will rationalize bravery and distinction to culture, religion or region.

      • Frank Bassey

        I did my NYSC in the North; I have lived and worked in the North. The people are special species of funny human beings. El-Rufai’s First Class and Masters Degrees are abundantly useless. The man is one of those over-rated Nigerians because of a single performance. Now he has been elevated to a higher position, it is obvious he cannot cope, just like Raji Fashola. These two get unpopular by the day.

  • Julius

    Go ahead, kill each other , abegi !

  • TDaniels2

    The attacked senators now know how it feels to be insecure. This is what millions of Nigerians go through everyday throughout the nooks and crannies of the country. Whilst one does not rejoice in evil or advocate unmerited violence, those in the corridors of power need to know and understand what ordinary folks go through so that they can make lawyers that make the society better and just looking after their own pockets,

    • Riot50000

      This should be happening every day in the ZOO.
      Youth empowerment and total rebellion and revolution might be very GREAT for the Zoo

      • Advocate if peace

        Must you mention that word “ZOO” in all your speaches?
        Why can’t you go ahead and make your point and move on?
        So sad!

        • A Aminu

          He is only trying to remind you where he comes from.

          • Joey_i60

            A Aminu, I am not one to cast aspersions but which group in Nigeria is noted for mass violence? Which group is noted for mass killings? The Hausa Fulani in this decade were Igbos and yorubas are agitating for self rule. Bornu is sponging off our limited resources because of the political menace ( BOKO HARAM) created by the North. Have you noticed BH is silent? These people are blood thirsty. They want us at war to benefit the west. With all this said, where is this ZOO, the zionists speak about?

        • Riot50000

          I wanted to use ANIMAL FARM, but decided to be nice to Animal Farms.
          Have you seen your President a.k.a ZOO KEEPER for the past 3 months?

  • Bright Ezeh

    Sani you may be the next to face recall from the Senate

  • A Aminu

    It is sad, political violence which used to be an exclusive reserve of the not so educated, and people who lost out, is not any more the case. If the government, which should be pre-occupied with developmental programmers for the advancement of the people of the state are figured out in this bastardly act of thurgry, then we should prepare ourselves for a greater tension than what we witnessed in 2015 in the coming election of 2019.
    Governor Nasiru el-rufai’s vaulting ambition knows no bounds. It is either he is scheming to be the Vice President, or wanting a second term at all cost. And if he could not, then let the state go on flames. This is short people for you.

  • MUHAMMADU BUHARI

    But why?

  • SB

    Shehu Sani, one of Saraki gansters who fought PMB government to a stand still. More of these attacks awaits them.
