Senator Abu Ibrahim, representing Katsina South Senatorial Zone, has refuted news reports that he was stoned at an All Progressives Congress (APC) rally which held in Funtua last Saturday, in order to receive decampees from the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
Speaking at an interactive session with journalists in Kaduna Sunday, Senator Ibrahim accused some PDP members of disrupting the rally which was attended by Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State, the three serving senators and members of the House of Representatives from the state among others.
Narrating what happened on Saturday, the Chairman Senate Committee on Police said APC chieftains had all gone to receive the governor in Danja before proceeding to commission few projects and lay the foundation stone of the Funtua motor park.
“After that, we proceeded to the venue of the rally. As usual with any political rally it was a political jamboree where people were campaigning for their aspirants and against their opponents. There were people who will hail you and those that will condemn you with various posters and placards to that effect, but it’s all politics.
“I was called to speak, and as I was making my speech I realised that something was wrong. I saw somebody who I thought should not be at such an occasion, an irresponsible fellow, who left PDP to join our party, but has continued with the acts of thuggery that he was known for in PDP.”
