Nasarawa youth attack Maku, Ewuga, others, burn car

A former Information Minister, Labaran Maku, and a senator, Solomon Ewuga, escaped unhurt as angry youth stormed the palace of Bala Angbazo, the paramount ruler of the Eggon people, on Sunday evening. The traditional ruler was hosting a reconciliatory meeting between three Eggon sons seeking to be Nasarawa governor under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The youth, who trooped to the palace in their hundreds, set ablaze a Toyota Corolla belonging to Chris Mamman, the immediate past National President of Eggon Cultural Association, ECD. Messrs Mamman, Maku, and Ewuga are all PDP governorship aspirants.

The meeting was being held to choose one a consensus from among the three Eggon aspirants.

Mr. Maku, who was attending the meeting for the first time, escaped unhurt before Messrs Ewuga and Mamman. The two men were rescued by military officers who came to the scene in three Hilux vans to forestall further destruction of property as the youth had blocked the Mr. Ewuga’s entourage and prevented them from going out of the palace.

Ibrahim Audu, a resident of Nasarawa Eggon, said the youth were angry with Mr. Mamman’s decision to contest the election.

When contacted, the Nasarawa Police spokesperson, Umar Numan, confirmed the attack and that Mr. Mamman’s car was burnt. He said calm had returned to the area and no arrest has been made.

    I am not an advocate of violence but i am happy that the this Maku guy felt the wrath of the people. He is arrogant, offensive and the lies from this man,. I watch him on TV and think, how can a man who supposedly was an activist before, talk down on people like this?(With lies to boot) The man is annoying…..Nonsense.
