Senator Shehu Sani, a Nigerian author, human rights activist and senator representing Kaduna State at the National Assembly, has taken to his official Twitter platform to reveal what happened between the northern and southern Kaduna during the 2019 election, citing that in the 2019 election, thugs were brought from the northern to the southern Kaduna to disrupt voting.

In his post, the senator wrote “in the 2019 elections, thugs from northern Kaduna were recruited and deployed to Southern Kaduna to disrupt voting in some communities. We call on security agencies to ensure there is no repeat of this brigandage”.
The post by the Nigerian lawmaker is coming ahead of the forthcoming gubernatorial election slated for March 18th 2023, and of which prior to the general election, there had been reports of terrorism and other forms of criminal activities in some parts of Kaduna State.
Obviously, the lawmaker is trying to call on concerned bodies and other security agencies to ensure that what he said happened during the 2019 general election would not repeat itself in the forthcoming election as people should be allowed to exercise their franchise by voting for a candidate of their choice doing elections.
Meanwhile, his post sparked massive reactions as many of his followers took to the comments sections to slam the Nigerian security agencies for allegedly not providing enough security for Nigerians during general elections, while a very few others told the lawmaker that between 2019 and 2023, he would have done something about the menace ahead of this year’s election.
