Three Killed, Three Houses Set On Fire In Kano

No fewer than three persons were reportedly killed while three houses were set ablaze during a clash between residents and thugs who invaded Wudil LGA of Kano State during the supplementary election.

The thugs were said to have invaded the area to disrupt the election as they insisted on voting but were prevented by the residents at a location between Utai and Achika district area.

“The incident happened before our eyes. At least three persons were killed in the clash. About three houses including the house of the LG Chairman were burnt.

“We learnt some thugs were brought to the area to disrupt the election. They were heavily armed while the residents too armed themselves to prevent them from disrupting the exercise,” a source said.

Similarly, violence marred the supplementary polls in Kwaciri, Kurna Gabas area of Fagge LGA and Zangon Marikita, Ungogo LGA of Kano State.

The Presiding Officer of the Kwaciri, Kurna Gabas area, Polling Unit 30 of Fagge LGA, Mustapha Sagir Umar said they started the accreditation and voting exercise in the area some minutes past 10am and the thugs disrupted the exercise twice before normalcy returned to the area.

The story was not different in Zangon Marikita, Ungogo LGA of the state where voting was disrupted but later continued after the police restored normalcy.
