Senator representing Kaduna South Senatorial district, Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi has survived an attempt to assassinate him, The unsuccessful attempt was carried out by some thungs armed with machete and guns who on Sunday stormed and disrupted a meeting convened by Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi with members of the All Progressives Congress from Kaduna Central Senatorial District at NUT Endwell Hotel.
The meeting attended by representatives from each of the local governments and the district was being rounded up when some thugs, numbering about ten stormed the venue, breaking car windshields before policemen shot into the air to disperse them.
But party faithfuls who had converged on the conference hall of the hotel scampered for safety and the meeting came to an abrupt end.
Five persons sustained injuries and were moved to Barau Dikko hospital before the police quickly moved in to disperse the thugs.
