Unidentified armed  thugs  Thursday night attacked Malam Nasir El-Rufai’s Campaign Office in Kaduna State.

Though the reason for the attack has not been established, there were suspicions that it was allegedly masterminded by some PDP supporters. 

In a press Statement issued out by El-Rufai’s Campaign Spokesman , Samuel  Aruwan said the attack which  was carried out around 10pm at the office located at Isa Kaita Road, Ungwar Sarki, Kaduna was carried out by sponsored thugs.

According to him,  the attackers left over 12 persons with serious life threatening wounds after forcing their way into the premises.

He  however stated that without the timely security intervention, the well armed thugs would have killed staff and supporters on the premises.

Meanwhile, he said the injured persons were rushed to Garkuwa Specialist Hospital, Kaduna.

While stating that the  attack came few hours after the APC governorship candidate, Malam Nasir El-Rufai raised alarm of impending attacks across the state being masterminded by the PDP led government of Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, Aruwan said El-Rufai remains committed to a violent free election.

“The APC has already demonstrated its acceptability and electoral might. Everyone knows that the APC stands poised to win Kaduna State comprehensively,” he maintained. 

He also insisted that Kaduna people are ready for change and so no one should stand on their way.
