An APC Senator, Isah Misau representing Bauchi Central District was allegedly attacked by an angry youths for supporting the embattled Senate President, Bukola Saraki. This incident was reported to have happened on Saturday in Ningi, part of his constituency while he was attending a function.
Two eye witnesses sources said Mr. Misau was in Ningi for a social function when he came under attack. It was at the social function that the Senator was pelted with stones and bottles, the witnesses said. One of them, Isa Sa’ad revealed that Mr. Misau was attacked because of his support for the troubled Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who is currently under public tension to resign because of his ongoing corruption trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
Mr. Sa’ad also said Ningi youth considered the Senate President as opposing President Muhammadu Buhari and that “anybody supporting Saraki is anti-Buhari”.
“You are aware Isah Hammah Misau is supporting Saraki who is corrupt and against the change agenda of President Buhari,” Mr. Misau said.
“And you see, Misau was sent to the Senate because we wanted him to support Buhari. But after getting to the Senate, he has teamed up with other people to support Saraki. Anybody supporting Saraki is anti-Buhari.
“That’s why people were throwing stones and bottles at him. He brought four cars but left with the smallest because others were damaged.”
“He left his cap and shoe while trying to escape.”
