Political thuggery, climate of fear dominates APC’s rallies in Kano – Comrade Abdussalam.



The deputy gubernatorial aspirant of PDP in Kano State Comrade Aminu Abdussalam alleged that the ruling party under the able leadership of Governor Umar Abdullahi Ganduje of breaking the peace accord established to govern the peaceful conducts political rallies in the State.

Comrade Abdulssalam made the disclosure on Wednesday while speaking to newsmen in Kano.

He said PDP in the state has observed with dismay on the continuous climate of fear and deterioration of peaceful atmosphere orchestrated by the ruling party in the course of running their political rallies.

“What transpired in Rano, Bichi and Ganduje during recent political gatherings, is a typical example, whereby lives are reportedly lost and scores of casualties recorded, and no one was arrested, and is a clear manifestation that APC is encouraging thuggery among gullible youth” he alleged

The Kano PDP deputy gubernatorial aspirants cited an example, adding that during PDP rallies in Tarauni local government area on 20th and on 27th in Kano Municipal, some hired miscreants were planted in their midst to wreak havoc, which were later arrested.

Comrade Abdussalam asserted that the ruling party in Kano is restive and jittery in view of the teeming supports their party is gaining in daily basis from Kano populace.

Which he said, they arguably realized this as an omen foretelling PDP’s victory in the forthcoming general election in Kano and beyond.

Adding that, “the inhospitable reception received by APC during their recent rally in Ajingi, had provoked thier thugs, and went on rampage, inflicting fears by brandishing weapons, defacing PDP billboards and posters while on their way to Kano, and nothing has been done by the security operatives to stopped the unbecoming attitude and curtailed its further occurrence” he alleged.

Comrade Aminu Abdussalam urged the Kano state security operatives to desist from lopsided party’s treatment, become neutral and discharged their statutory duties required by the law.

SSS Arrests Anti-Ganduje Social Media Critic



Salisu Hotoro, a critic of the governor of Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduje and supporter of Kwankwasiyya movement, has been arrested.

Mr Hotoro was picked by the operatives of the State Security Service, SSS, in his Hotoro home on Thursday.

Sources disclosed that he was arrested for allegedly casting aspersions on a former managing director of Nigerian Ports Authority, Aminu Dabo.

The former managing director of NPA drew the ire of the Kwankwasiyya supporters when he reportedly claimed that he “takes care” of Kwankwasiyya supporters before his defection to APC.

Sanusi Dawakin-Tofa, spokesman for Kano State gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Abba Yusuf, confirmed Mr Hotoro’s arrest on his Facebook page, saying he was arrested by the SSS.

“Salisu Yahaya Hotoro, a member of my team and a social media activist faithful to Kwankwasiyya movement in Kano has been arrested by the men of DSS in Kano.

“Salisu was humiliated and chained at both his legs and hands then taken away to an unknown destination.

“We condemn this intimidation on the opposition as an act of impunity from the enemies of democracy,” Mr Dawakin-Tofa wrote.

Mr Dawakin-Tofa disclosed that all efforts by the Kwankwasiyya group to know Mr Hotoro’s whereabouts proved futile.

While condemning the arrest, the spokesman alleged that the development was a plot by the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje and the All Progressives Congress, APC to launch onslaught on him and some Kwankwasiyya social media activists.

He vowed that the intimidation would not deter the opposition from criticising President Muhammadu Buhari and Mr Ganduje over alleged injustice meted to them in the re-run election.

The state Director of SSS, Alhasan Mohammed, could not be reached at at the time of filing in this report as his mobile number was not reachable.

Mr Hotoro was previously arrested and charged to court late last year.
