News Update No Comments

In spite the huge presence of armed soldiers and policemen at the venue of the inauguration of the new Niger state governor Abubakar Sani Bello, the out-gone governor, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu had to be quickly evacuated after the crowd pelted him with stones.

Security operatives had to fire shots in the air to disperse the surging crowd that hauled stones at him shortly after the inauguration, as he made to leave the venue.

The shooting led to a stampede in the venue as people scampered to safety with many sustaining injuries of varied degrees. The event rounded off at about 11:45 am.
