Alhaji Shittu Shittu, the Kaduna state chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC narrowly escaped death on Thursday evening after thugs pursued him out of a conference room in Kaduna state government house.
PoliticsNGR learned that the unfortunate incident occurred during a solidarity visit by the former boss of SMEDAN, Bature Masari, to the government house after his defection to the ruling APC.
Chaos erupted when Shittu stood up to give his remark, stating that he did not know Bature Masari very well. In his words;
“I cannot say I know you very well but I know you were in PDP and you campaigned against us, when we were in the struggle.I hope you have not come here to deceive us and then go away.”
This comment enraged Bature Masari’s supporters who immediately attacked the APC chairman, right in the presence of the governor and senior party officials.
Security personnel had to smuggle Shittu out of the premises.
