Happening right now …
The magnificent billboards of Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the governor of Kano state and that of his deputy Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and those of APC candidates are presently being full down by some irate political thugs along airport road, especially those situated around the strategic airport roundabout are already torn into pieces.
The political thugs while welding assorted local marched and sticks they were vehemently shouting on top of their voice ‘sai Jonathan Arne mara sallah’. I could not interview them because many of them are looking aggressive and definitely under the influence of drugs.
To my understanding they don’t give a damn for the arrival of either the police or the army whose barrack is situated closed by.
While watching, i still asked a watcher who express to me the logic behind the unprovoked attack, that it is significant because is a way of convincing the political actor that his team in Kano are equal to the task.
If you can recall a Jonathan/Sambo joint picture signboard was brought down by some unknown individuals some weeks ago, to my understanding this could be a retaliation because it was torn to pieces.
