JUST IN: Armed men attack Kwankwaso
Former Governor of Kano State and the immediate past Senator representing Kano Central, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso escaped been lynched in Kano on Monday after heavy armed thugs attacked him.
The thugs, who were alleged to be supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) by the Kwankwasiyya spokesperson, Hajiya Binta Sipikin, were said to have carried out the attack under the Madobi Road underpass.
The attack was said to have happened after the former governor had paid a visit to his hometown, Madobi, where he opened a midwifery school.
