Unidentified armed thugs on Thursday night attacked Nasir El-Rufai’s Campaign Office in Kaduna state.
A press statement issued out by El-Rufai’s Campaign Spokesman, Samuel Aruwan, said the attack which was carried out around 10:00 p.m. at the office located at Isa Kaita Road, Ungwar Sarki, Kaduna was carried out by sponsored thugs.
According to him, the attackers left over 12 persons with serious life threatening wounds after forcing their way into the premises.
He stated that but for timely security intervention, the well armed thugs would have killed staff and supporters on the premises.
Meanwhile, he said the injured persons are receiving medical attention at Garkuwa Specialist Hospital, Kaduna.
While stating that the attack came few hours after the APC governorship candidate, Malam Nasir El-Rufai raised alarm of impending attacks across the state being masterminded by the PDP-led government of Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, Aruwan said El-Rufai remains committed to a violence-free election.
“The APC has already demonstrated its acceptability and electoral might. Everyone knows that the APC stands poised to win Kaduna State comprehensively ” he maintained.
He also insisted that Kaduna people are ready for change and so no one should stand in their way.
