News reaching us at katsinapost.com has it that the state APC Chairman, Alhaji Shittu Shittu, escaped mob attack today Thursday, 8th of February, 2018 evening at the Muhammadu Buhari House, Katsina State.
Our sources reports that the incident happened shortly after the courtesy visit of some newly PDP decampees from Kafur Local government led by Alhaji Bature Umar Masari.
Observers said the development might not be unconnected with his remarks at the occasion, in which he expressed doubt about the genuineness of the defectors.
Shitu was quoted to have said in his remarks that, “I did not know (Bature Umar) Masari very well; I knew you campaigned against us when we were in the struggle in 2015. I hope you have not come here to deceive us and then go away.”
The Chairman was later rescued by security agents.
