Eleven people suspected to be behind the recent attack of APC members during the party’s stakeholders meeting in Lafiagi have been served a summons to appear in the Lafiagi Magistrate court on Friday, February 19.

“ Witnesses identified certain aides of the Governor as being sponsors of the said attack. Particular mentions were made of the Tescom chairman (Bello car wash), Barrister Aliyu Alhassan ( former SA) and Mohammed Aliyu alias Labassa ( Caretaker chairman)”
“Hoodlums who took part in the said attack have been invited by the police. They include: 1. Usman Ndagura (aka “Temperature”- Gang Leader) of Emi NdaguraTifin – Ekogi area, Lafiagi. 2.

“We are surprised as to why Mohammed Aliyu alias Labasa (The APC Caretaker Chairman in Edu ) who was alleged to be one of the sponsors was the one that posted their bail”
“The suspects have, however, been served a summons to appear at the Lafiagi Magistrate court on Friday, February 19.
But there are very strong indications that the case may be transferred to Ilorin on the instruction of powers that be”
“Is there a possible abortion of justice in the offing? Well, that remains to be seen”
