Daily Trust - - POLITICS - From Is­mail Ade­bayo, Birnin Kebbi

Thugs have de­stroyed the bill­boards, posters and ban­ners of the PDP se­na­to­rial can­di­date for Kebbi Cen­tral, Al­haji Abubakar Shehu, pop­u­larly known as Abu Geda in Gwandu, Jega and Li­man Zang­ina ar­eas of Birnin Kebbi. Shehu, who lamented the de­struc­tion of his ban­ners and bill­boards in three lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas (LGAs), told Daily Trust that he was happy with the prompt in­ter­ven­tion of the se­cu­rity agen­cies who ar­rested the sus­pects.

The for­mer sec­re­tary gen­eral of Gwandu Emi­rate said two peo­ple were ap­pre­hended in Jega, one in Gwandu and an­other at Li­man Zang­ina ar­eas of Birnin Kebbi while de­stroy­ing his bill­boards and ban­ners.

He said, “Kebbi is a peace­ful state, I am a law abid­ing cit­i­zen. I am go­ing to the Se­nate to make laws for this coun­try. I call on the lead­er­ship of the APC to cau­tion who­ever is be­hind this. The de­struc­tion of posters, ban­ners and bill­boards has not hap­pened in Kebbi South, it does not hap­pen in Kebbi North, it is hap­pen­ing only in Kebbi Cen­tral. I know that the sup­port­ers of Buhari are not the ones de­stroy­ing my bill­boards and ban­ners. I also know that the sup­port­ers of Gover­nor Bagudu are not be­hind it. I know who is be­hind it.”

He said the cul­prits had been charged to court.
