The Chairman Senate Committee on Navy, Senator Isah Hamma Misau, was reportedly stoned by angry youths at the weekend at his constituency for supporting the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki. Sources said Mr. Misau was in Ningi for a social function when he came under attack.
The senator is behind the bill to amend the CCT Act which the people alleged was brought about to stall the trial of the Senate president Bukola Saraki, who is currently standing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) following a 13-count charge levelled against him for alleged false and anticipatory asset declaration during his tenure as the Kwara State governor between 2003 and 2011.
One eye witness by name Sa’ad told BuzzNigeria that Ningi youth considered the Senate President as opposing President Muhammadu Buhari and that “anybody supporting Saraki is anti-Buhari”.
“You are aware Isah Hammah Misau is supporting Saraki who is corrupt and against the change agenda of President Buhari. And you see, Misau was sent to the Senate because we wanted him to support Buhari. But after getting to the Senate, he has teamed up with other people to support Saraki. Anybody supporting Saraki is anti-Buhari.
“That’s why people were throwing stones and bottles at him. He brought four cars but left with the smallest because others were damaged.”
The senator was said to have been saved by military personnel manning a checkpoint located close to Ningi town where the youths attacked the senator.
Efforts made to get the Senator to comment on the incidence at the time of filing this report proved abortive. The State Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Auwal Aliyu Jallah, was however contacted but he said the party was not aware of the attack.
