Another member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who tried to re-enact Nigeria’s ex president action by openly tearing his PDP membership card has been allegedly beaten by thugs.
The senior special assistant on security to the governor of Gombe State, Abdullahi Muhammad publicly tore his party membership card on February 17, 2015, following the example of Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Camera caught the aid shredding his card and pledging his allegiance to the All Progressives Congress.
Here is Abdullahi Muhammad’s side of the story after the incident:
“I was attacked by a group of hoodlums numbering 3 who accosted me at a car wash near Buba Shongo along Bauchi road in Gombe. While they were hitting me one of them was shouting on top of his voice saying “why must you antagonize the Governor (Dankwambo)”. It was then I realized their mission! They drove in a car with reg number BLG 142 AA. IF I HAVE TO PAY THE SUPREME PRICE, FOR MY PEOPLE TO GAIN SUCCURE, SO BE IT. I DECAMPED TO APC AND NO GOING BACK. IF HIS EXCELLENCY FEELS KILLING ME IS WHAT WILL RETURN HIM COME 11TH APRIL, THE MASSES WILL DECIDE HIS FATE EVEN AFTER MY DEMISE.”
Nigerian Bulletin reported that, shortly after the incident, Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo accused his assistant of seeking a loan for his mortgage.
