Garba in the statement said the attack followed a trek embarked on in the area by the NNPP gubernatorial candidate, Abba Kabir Yusuf  accompanied by multitude of thugs after attending a wedding fatiha in the area.

The statement said it was unfortunate that after the incidence, Yusuf was heaping blame on the APC and even calling for the arrest of its chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas.

According to the statement, Garba accused the NNPP of engaging in wild propaganda, cooked up tales and deliberate falsehoods in order to create chaos and undermine the forthcoming general elections.

The commissioner also condemned the provocative statement by the NNPP chairman, Haruna Umar Doguwa for making personal attack and hate speech capable of causing violence in the wake of the weekend incident.

‘’The commissioner noted that mass defection from the NNPP and the apparent achievements of the APC in Kano is giving the opposition a sleepless night which stands it a better chance of winning elections.‘’

‘’He also appealed to members of the APC to remain calm and always be law abiding as the party continues to win the heart of the people of Kano and swims to victory in 2023.‘’
