The lawmaker, who described how he eventually disguised himself and got inside the venue unharmed, expressed sadness for how several of his supporters were cruelly macheted into a coma using hazardous weapons.

Few minutes to the commencement of the exercise, I was cautioned by a security personal not come to the venue of the election the same time the electoral chairman sent me text message urging me to come to the venue because election is about to start,” Shaaban said.

“To my surprise, the security personnel deployed from Abuja were asked to step down from escorting me to the election venue.

“In addition to this discovery, another person informed me of a rumor circulating on the issue of my assassination all in an attempt to deter me from becoming the APC’s flagbearer.

“I took the required safety measures and sneaked into the election venue, thanks to Allah (SWT).

“In my manifesto speech, I drew the attention of the entire stakeholders on the plans by the Kano State Government to enforce an anointed candidate to our party delegates by not allowing them to exercise their constitutional right to vote their preferred candidate.

“However, no action was taken While the exercise continues, there were further plans to use thugs and end my life on my exit from the venue.

“Later, I equally received another intelligence that those thugs already attacked, killed and injured many of my supporters and that prompted me to quickly leave the venue and proceeded to the hospital where they were receiving medical attention,” he added.
