Thugs sponsored by APC harass, intimidate me — Zamfara federal lawmaker, Gumi, alleges

A member of the Gumi/Bukkuyum Federal Constituency in Zamfara State, Suleiman Abubakar Gumi, has claimed that political thugs allegedly sponsored by APC heavyweights in the state have harassed and intimidated him.

Gumi told reporters in Gusau, the state capital, that an APC chieftain in Gumi town, Maikwarya Gumi, has been sponsoring thugs to harass and intimidate him.

The federal lawmaker claimed that thugs on Maikwarya’s orders destroyed his campaign office, billboards, and posters on numerous occasions.

Gumi recalled that political thugs once attempted to burn down the office he built for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Gumi town.

He said, “They have made several attempts to set the office ablaze but were prevented by security agents and well-wishers in the town.

“The APC stalwart, Maikwarya, was not comfortable with my growing popularity in the zone, being the main reason he has been attacking me by using political thugs to humiliate and intimidate me.”
