Following allegations that they were deployed to tamper with the Kano by-election process, some political thugs have been apprehended by the Nigerian Police in Kano State. The Leader of the Thugs, whose identity has been suppressed, claims that they were told to help protect an APC lawmaker’s votes in the ongoing byelection.
He disclosed that the opposition party’s mobilization of supporters toward a common goal was the source of this command. He said that last night was the payment day for the N10,000 in compensation that each of the parties concerned received.
