The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano of promoting violence.


The opposition declared that the actions of APC leaders were a clear testimony of the ruling party’s failure.


NNPP state chairman Umar Doguwa condemned the altercation between Alhassan Doguwa, House of Representatives Majority Leader, and Murtala Garo, deputy governorship candidate.


In a statement on Thursday, Doguwa said the incident created “another national embarrassment for Kano” and urged security agencies to forestall acts capable of throwing the state into crisis.


He alleged Garo and Alhassan “are well-known for supporting and abetting political thuggery”, warning that their disagreement could lead to deaths and destruction of properties.


“Alhassan is on rampage, and from experience, Murtala Garo must revenge, so the political atmosphere is already overheated.


“From the inception of the internal crisis, supporters of the warring camps have gone on rampage, destroying each other’s billboards and removing posters that do not belong to their bosses.


“If this behaviour is not promptly controlled, it may result in a big time political violence capable of causing deaths and loss of properties”, Doguwa said.


The NNPP chairman advised the people against supporting a “bunch of reckless politicians” incapable of putting their house in order.


An APC meeting on Monday turned bloody when Rep Doguwa attacked Garo at the home of the deputy governor, Nasir Gawuna.


The meeting was convened to review the successes and failures recorded during the visit of the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.


Daily Nigerian reported how Doguwa, who was not invited to the meeting, stormed the venue to see the state chairman, Abdullahi Abbas.


The lawmaker complained he was sidelined on matters pertaining to funds, but only invited to execute difficult party assignments.


After a stream of invective on Gawuna, Doguwa accused Garo of ordering his boys to cover his picture on the party’s banners during Tinubu’s visit.


Garo attempted to call him to order and recalled how the legislator abused his parents the previous night during a meeting in Doguwa’s residence.


The member representing Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency then grabbed the deputy governor’s tea cup and allegedly threw it at Garo, leaving a gash on his hand.


Before that day, Doguwa allegedly verbally assaulted Information Commissioner, Mohammed Garba, for not including his name as a speaker during Governor Ganduje’s book launch in Abuja.


Earlier, during Tinubu’s visit to Kano, Doguwa allegedly threw a folded babbar riga at APC Rep caucus chairman, Ali Wudil, over an issue.
