A political stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Gombe State, Dahiru Hassan Kera has frowned at the violence recorded in some local government areas in Gombe state, during the last Saturday All Progressive Congress ( APC) local government Congress where one person was reported killed and several others injured in Deba.
Kera, who made this known in a statement issued to newsmen in Gombe on Sunday, said it is unfortunate that the era of violence being champion by the APC, may gradually be creeping back into Gombe politics, going by the spate of aggression that marred the APC Congress in the state.
Kera who was the chairman of the media and publicity committee of the Dankwambo’s campaign organization during the 2015 general elections, expressed regrets that the APC is trying to take the state back to the dark era of political violence, thuggery and crimes after efforts by the Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo’s led administration in rescuing the state from those dark ages.
“The proponents of the APC in Gombe State were the same people that bred the ‘Kalare’ political thugs in the state who maimed, raped, killed, and robbed unsuspected indigenes of the state freely, during the administration of Danjuma Goje, the devilish act was successfully curtailed and pared down by the Dankwambo’s administration.”
Kera, who said they cannot fold their hands and allow some desperate and selfish politicians to breathe new life into the heinous and monstrous act of thuggery in the state, call on security agencies in the state to take proactive measures before the act get out of control.
“We call on the security agencies in the state to buckle up and stem the tide of the evil and flagitious activities that will consume human lives.” Stressing that in civilized democracy, the sanctity of human life must be valued and respected.’’
It would be recalled that violence erupted during the last Saturday APC congress in some parts of Gombe which led to the death of one Salisu Dage, in Deba the headquarters of Yamaltu/Deba Local Government Area of the State.
