The youths started violent protest against the two lawmakers in the early hours of today, besieging senator’s house and after destroying his country, dispersed and later regroup to set the office of the House of Reps member ablaze.

It was gathered that the youths were angry over the alleged failure of both lawmakers representing them in the National Assembly to fulfill their campaign promises.

According to one of the leaders of the youths, Tanimu Gaya, said the youths were angry over the failure of the lawmakers to provide water, electricity, jobs and roads as they promised prior to their elections in 2015.

They lamented that one year after the polls, residents of the area still cover a long distance to get water, while hundreds of youth still roam the streets without jobs.

The Spokesperson of the Kano State Police Command, DSP Musa Majiya, who confirmed the attacks, said officers of the command were still battling to restore sanity in the area.

Effort to reach both lawmakers for comment was unsuccessful as at the time of filing this report.
