The supplementary governorship election ongoing in Kano has been marred by multiple reports of violence mostly fuelled by thugs.
For Dahiru Sa’ad who dared the thugs, he traded a few teeth in exchange. He was beaten by thugs who wanted his to vote for a party of their choice.
Sa’ad lost his teeth during at a clash at Masaka polling unit in Kano.
Eyewitnesses told journalists that voting was made impossible for supporters of a particular political party as weapon carrying thugs were all over, intimidating anyone that shows sympathy to that party.
The eyewitnesses did not tell if the thugs were working for the All Progressives Congress or Peoples Democratic Party.
