Former Governor of Kano State and the immediate past Senator representing Kano Central, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, was attacked by armed thugs who are yet to be identified in Kano, Monday.
The attack, which followed the former governor’s visit to his hometown, Madobi where he had gone to open a midwifery school, was said to have been carried out around the state underpass.
Eight persons were said to have been critically injured while several cars were damaged beyond recognition.
However, Hajiya Binta Sipikin, Kwankwaso’s media aide, linked the attack to thugs loyal to political opponents
She said, “This attack was preplanned because we were told that heavy-armed thugs were waiting under the bridge to attack us when we were coming from Madobi.
