Pandemomium broke out at the Nigerian Union of Journalism secretariat in Kaduna state earlier today as thugs said to be within the APC in the state, stormed the secretariat to disrupt a press conference that was being organized by Senator Shehu Sani who represents Kaduna Central in the senate. Sani and the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai have been at loggerheads over the affairs of the state. Sani is very critical of the manner and style in which the state governor is leading the state. Sani has accused El-Rufai of wanting to hand-pick delegates that would represent the state in the forthcoming party convention.

The thugs destroyed the chairs at the secretariat and every injured a journalist who was at the press conference and destroyed his camera. They also damaged some vehicles within the premises of the secretariat.

Meanwhile Shehu Sani has released a statement regarding the incident. Read the statement shared on his Facebook page below

In Kaduna city, at the NUJ state secretariat today, we held a PRESS conference against attempt by the Governor of Kaduna state and his minions to hijack and destroy the party in the state.The Governor wanted to write names of his boys and send to Abuja as “delegates” for the Party convention. Our position is that delegates must be elected and not selected in line with the party’s guidelines for congresses.Sponsored armed thugs invaded the venue aided by a police officer; they damaged vehicles and attacked innocent persons.They injured a journalist leaving him in the pool of his blood.Present in the press conference was Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, Members of House of reps, Hon Sani Suleiman, Hon Isa Ashiru,Hon Haruna Saeed and other politicians from all the three zones.Our position is unambiguous, we will not tolerate sadism or fascism in our party.Those afraid of elections deserve no place in a democracy.The struggle is our familiar terrain.
