Angry mob attack Jigawa Governor’s aide and to other top officials


Jigawa state Governor Badaru Abubakar’s Special Adviser on Community Development and Social Inclusion, Mr. Hamza Mohammed,  and other top government officials of the state were on September 29 attacked by an angry mob.


The attack occurred after the officials embarked on a flood assessment of the Ganuwar Kuka area of the state.


Some residents of the area alleged that the Jigawa state government officials were attacked to register their displeasure against the state government over an alleged lackluster attitude towards the flood which has affected eight local government areas under the Hadejia emirate.


Governor Abubakar however, condemned the attack on his aide and also alleged that it was politically motivated.


Badaru said;

“This is politically motivated. How can one attack someone who is trying to provide you with support? Nobody is responsible for this disaster.

“It is God’s will and we cannot prevent it from happening. Even in the United States, they experience disasters. Who are we to prevent what God has ordained?”
