House of Representatives Majority Leader Alhassan Ado Doguwa has accused the presidential candidate of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, of allegedly igniting violence, before and during last Saturday’s elections in Kano State.
Three persons were reportedly killed when suspected political thugs set ablaze the party’s campaign secretariat in Tudun Wada Local Government Area of Kano State on Sunday.
Police spokesman Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa said two persons in a stationary vehicle inside the building of the campaign office of the House of Representatives candidate of NNPP were burnt to death.
It was learnt that suspected political thugs attempted to burn the INEC office in the local government area.
Four suspects have been arrested in connection with the incidents, the police said.
The NNPP alleged that Doguwa sponsored the violence, but the lawmaker denied the allegation.
He also said the police never invited him over the incidents.
“I have not received any invitation from the police. But if there is any, I’m ready to go and clear my name,” he said.
Doguwa said the attack on the NNPP office in the town was carried out by Kwankwaso’s supporters.
The lawmaker said the NNPP flag bearer’s supporters hired an office about 50 metres away from the INEC office with the intent to attack the building.
He also alleged that after stockpiling weapons for the planned attack, the weapons exploded on them.
Doguwa, who addressed reporters in Kano on the outcome of the election in Tudunwada/Doguwa Federal Constituency, said: “All accusations leveled against me are baseless and unfounded.”
The lawmaker accused Kwankwaso of causing the trouble, claiming that the state was peaceful until the NNPP flag bearer arrived on the scene with his supporters.
“Kwankwaso should be held responsible for the violence before and during the just-concluded presidential and National Assembly elections in Kano because the state was peaceful until the NNPP presidential candidate decided to storm Kano with his hundreds of thugs who went on a rampage, killing and burning people and properties.
“Even my house was razed down at Kwankwasiyya town by the Kwankwaso supporters the day he came to Kano for his rally. Also, everyone is aware of so many cars that were burnt,” he said.
According to the police, a group of political hoodlums also attacked INEC office in Takai Local Government Area, venue of election results collation centre on Sunday.
But the report said the swift response by the police and other security agencies in the state averted the calamity.
“Everyone is aware that NNPP supporters were the ones who went to Doguwa and destroyed so many properties worth over N1 billion.
“I personally reported to the police command and the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) for the zone, but nothing was done.
“If Governor Abdullahi Ganduje cannot call Kwankwaso to order for his violence and violent outbursts, including his remarks that ‘If I order my boys to go and arrest Ganduje, they will do it’, we at the National Assembly will call him to order,” Doguwa said.
