The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, escaped a deadly attack in Kafanchan, Jema’a local government area on Tuesday.
Mr. El-Rufai and his entourage were pelted with stones and some of their vehicles damaged after addressing some people in the area over the state of events, immediately after he held the state security council meeting in the area.
The official residence of the local government chairman, Bege Katuka, was also burnt down in the attack.
According to a resident of Kafanchan who witnessed the attack on the governor, the attack was not by women who initiated the protest, but by youth who joined the protesters.
“They threw dangerous items at the governor. Bottles, stones and rods. They were shouting and singing hate songs,” the resident said.
