Suspected thugs on Sunday disrupted a gathering of some stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress loyal to Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi , representing the Kaduna North Senatorial District in the Senate .
The thugs , numbering over 10 , stormed the NUT End Well Hotel in Kaduna , the state capital , at about 3 . 15 pm, attacking everyone in sight , including those that lodged in the hotel.
Although no life was lost , five persons sustained injuries and were rushed to the Barau Dikko Specialists Hospital in the state capital .
The thugs , wielding weapons, vandalised some properties of the hotel, while party members and supporters jumped through the windows and other emergency exit points .
Security operatives shot into the air to disperse the hoodlums .
Earlier while addressing members of the party from Kaduna Central Senatorial District , Hunkuyi insisted that congress must hold at the ward , local and state levels as against the alleged “ planned selection of delegates through affirmation ” in Kaduna State .
The lawmaker , who had earlier addressed a stakeholders’ meeting from the Southern Kaduna Senatorial District , noted that there was the need for a change of guard at the Kaduna Government House in 2019 .
The senator said , “ There are perfected plans to ensure that congresses do not hold in order to read out names to be affirmed as delegates by the government in power .
