The Kaduna State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) government of Governor Nasir El-Rufai of allegedly masterminding the recent attack on journalists in the state.
Some journalists and a faction of the APC stalwarts loyal to Senator Shehu Sani were attacked penultimate week.
Paying a sympathy visit to the state secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), PDP Chairman in the state, Felix Hassan Hyet, accused the APC of allegedly using thugs to threaten and intimidate party members.
He, therefore, warned the APC to, “stop playing politics of bitterness and learn how to nurture the youths to become useful and productive instead of engaging them as hoodlums.”
He expressed sadness over the injury inflicted on a photojournalist by the thugs who were allegedly sponsored and induced by a highly placed politician in the state.
State chairman of the NUJ, Adamu Yusuf, said such attack had never happened in the history of the Union in Kaduna and commended the PDP for identifying with the NUJ in its difficult moment.
