Senator Shehu Sani Raises Alarm, Says "El-Rufai Wants To Kill Me"

 Senator Shehu Sanni representing Kaduna Central has raised alarm on the alleged plans by Governor Nasir El-Rufai to kill him.

This was contained in the statement released by his aide Suleiman Ahmed, the senator claimed that El-Rufai made the threat at a Town Hall meeting in Giwa Local Government on June 4.

In the statement “Hate speech and threat to life by Governor Nasiru El-Rufai against Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani”, Sanni said Nigerians should hold the governor responsible if anything untoward happened to him.

The statement reads:

  “Our attention has been drawn to a hate speech and threat to life made by Governor Nasiru El-Rufai against Senator Shehu Sani in the Governor’s circus christened as Town Hall meeting in Giwa Local Government on June 4. The Governor evidently referred to Senator Sani, Dr Hakeem Baba Ahmed, Isa Ashiru Kudan as “Ants he will match and crush.” We could have ignored this statement as tantrums of an accidental governor, but we decided not to take things for granted in view of his mean and vicious history, and his allergy to criticism. We hold Governor El-Rufai responsible for any harm done to Sani. This statement is to alert security agencies and the public that in the event of any injury or assassination of Senator Shehu Sani, Governor Nasiru El-Rufai should be held responsible. We advice El-Rufai that he doesn’t need to “crush Ants” or spill the blood of Senator Shehu Sani and others to realise his political ambitions. Since he is not appeased with Sani’s “suspension”, he has now resorted to threats of crushing and matching. We wish to let governor El-Rufai know that threats of “crushing” or execution cannot deter us from our noble path in protecting our people from his brigandage.”
All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has said Sani should not be taken seriously.
