Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje narrowly missed an attack on his convoy as heavily armed bandits along Shema in Katsina State attacked his convoy on their way back to Kano from Zamfara State.
Governor Ganduje was in Zamfara State on Tuesday to attend the formal defection of Governor Bello Matawale of Zamfara into the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He reportedly joined Jigawa State Governor, Muhammadu Abubakar Badaru, back to Kano according to DAILY TRUST.
However, as the Kano State government’s convoy headed back to Kano, it came under heavy gun attacks from the bandits who had blocked the Zamfara, Katsina and Kano Road, around Shema.
In the ensuing gun duel, three police officers sustained minor bullet injuries, while the convoy ambulance was riddled with bullets.
Another vehicle was said to have lost its tires after being hit by bullets. It however managed to drive to a safer place before they changed their tires.
