By Abdulgafar Oladimeji

Aggrieved  youths in Sharada quarters in Kano last Monday  carried out mob action against  the executive  chairman,  of Kano Municipal  Council KMC, Faizu Al Findinki.

Our correspondent reports that the angry youths  were provoked by the action of the council boss, who allegedly  arrived the site of a constituency project , proceeded to unearth  the project  sign post and allegedly vandalized    parts of the drainage  work , on   going  at Kawanar Kasuwa in KMC.

It was gathered that the ongoing project is a constituency projected credited to the member representing the area in the federal house of representatives, Sha’aban Sharada.

Kano reporters gathered that the provocative action allegedly carried out by the council boss is not unconnected with the ongoing internal crisis ravaging the ruling APC in the state.

The angry residents  had destroyed a posh vehicle suspected to belong to the local government  chairman, in reaction to the moves by the council chairman to frustrate the drainage  project, which seemed to be popular with the inhabitants  of the community.

The supporters of the APC leaders  then engaged in a free for all  fight , resulting into the  damage  of properties and constituting threat to lives and properties in the densely populated community.

A resident confirmed that the  mob embarked on the unfettered  use of  dangerous weapons to express their disgust over the actions attributed to Mr Al Findiki.

Supporters of  the LG  chairman also wedge the attack on their leader , thus leading to a chaotic situation in Sharada  quarters and its environs.

Our correspondent gathered  that anti riot policemen  were summoned to quell and return the situation to normalcy.

“police arrived and they started  shooting sporadically, we all scampered for our  safety.” A resident told this reporter.
