The police have already arrested four suspects linked to the attack.
Unidentified persons on Monday attacked officials of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Caretaker Committee, Kano State chapter.
The Public Relations Officer of the committee, Ja’afar Bello, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria in Kano.
He said that the incident happened at 1:30 p.m. when the committee was holding a meeting.
He said the attackers were armed with dangerous weapons and injured four persons during the attack.
“We were about to finish our meeting when the attackers suddenly invaded the venue.
“Some of us escaped by jumping down from the third floor of the three-story building,” Mr. Bello said.
He said it was by the miracle of God that the committee members escaped being lynched.
Abubakar Rano, a journalist who sustained a minor injury during the attack, said that he jumped from the building when the attackers came.
When contacted the Police Commissioner in the state, Musa Daura, confirmed the incident.
He said four suspects were arrested and being questioned at the Command’s State Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
“’Our people have arrested four persons in connection with the incident and are being investigated,” he added.
The Kano PDP caretaker committee was appointed by the national leadership of the party against the interest of the Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, who is a member of the Abubakar Baraje-led faction of the PDP.
