Angry Gov El-Rufai Demolishes Opposition Building For Suspending Him
Governor Nasir el Rufai of Kaduna State early this morning ordered the demolition of the secretariat of the factional All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state for suspending him from the party.
PMNEWS gathered that the building being used by the APC faction called Kaduna Restoration Group, led by Senator Suleiman Hukunyi, representing Kaduna north central, was pulled down under supervision by armed policemen and soldiers.
Senator Hunkuyi accused El-Rufai of ordering the demolition, adding that armed soldiers blocked both sides of the road during the exercise.
Though Governor El-Rufai is yet to respond to inquiries on the demolition, a senior official of the Kaduna government who did not want his name in print confirmed that the building was demolished by the Kaduna State Urban and Property Development Agency (KASUPDA) for illegal activities.
According to him, the building was allocated for residential purposes and not for political activities.
The Senator Hunkuyi faction of the APC in the state on Thursday accused Governor of El-Rufai of anti-party activities and later suspended him for six months.
