Thousands of people believed to be the supporters of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), on Saturday, stormed the streets to protest the governorship dispute between Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf; and his counterpart in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nasir Gawuna.
According to them, they want the apex court to deliver a fair judgement confirming the mandate of Kano people on Yusuf.
The protesters took to the streets in the Rogo Local Government Area of the state on Saturday. They started with a prayer seeking divine intervention. After the prayer session, they staged a march, raising placards with different inscriptions.
Goods and other properties valued at about N70 million were destroyed in a fire incident at No. 2C, Aba road, opposite Penco Plaza in Umuahia, Abia State, on Thursday night.
Several mails containing international passports were also burnt during the inferno.
Although the cause of the fire outbreak was not established at the time of the incident, some sympathizers said preliminary investigations pointed at a spark from a faulty electrical wall socket in one of the shops upstairs.
