The ex-Governor of Gombe State, Senator Danjuma Goje, was reportedly subjected to humiliation on Friday in Gombe, the state capital.
According to Lilian Nworie the spokesman of the lawmaker, her principal’s vehicles were attacked by some political thugs around International Conference Centre on the Bauchi – Gombe Road.
Nworie revealed Goje’s vehicles were attacked with dangerous weapons as he was about to enter the state capital for a personal engagement.
The media aide stated that the thugs set bonfires on the main road, preventing the Gombe Central Senator from entering into the state.
Nworie, however, accused the state Governor, Inuwa Yahaya. of being the attack, adding that police officers stationed in the area failed to arrest the thugs during the incident.
She said, “Senator Goje had a serious encounter with some political thugs who burnt tyres on the main road as he was about to enter the state capital around International Conference Centre on the Bauchi – Gombe Road.
“Policemen stationed at the area refused to call the thugs to order as they were watching them cause mayhem in the state.”
Bennievibez recalls that the Gombe Governor had debunked reports that he has a rift with his predecessor, Senator Muhammad Danjuma Goje.
In an interview with BBC Hausa Service on Wednesday in September, governor Yahaya said he has no quarrel with the Gombe Central Senator.
Yahaya added that he has no issues with Goje over who should be the party’s leader in the state, adding that the party’s arrangements must be adhered to.
The governor also emphasized that they all belong to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and that the party provisions should be followed.
“There is no row between him and me; it’s only that the party must give everyone a chance and remain honest.
“If I go astray, then I should be put back on track, and if anyone goes astray they should also be brought back on the track,” he said.
