Kaduna APC ‘Akida’ factional Chairman allegedly missing
The Chairman of a faction of Kaduna All Progressives Congress (APC), known as ‘Akida’ which is backed by the two Senators, Alhaji Danladi Wada is allegedly missing since on Saturday.
Sources by the family told DAILY ASSET that the factional Chairman of the APC opposed to the State governor, Nasir El Rufai, went to a nearby mosque close to his Kaduna Angwan Rimi GRA residence, around 5:30 a.m. Saturday for morning prayers, and has since not been seen or heard from.
Sources expressed deep concerns over Wada’s whereabouts, saying that the incident coincided with the day the governor’s faction of APC was conducting primaries for the forthcoming local government elections.
“We are seriously worried because the Nasir El-Rufai APC faction are conducting their primary elections preparatory to the forthcoming local government elections’, sources said. “He was missing since morning and we went to Police and DSS offices but they told us he was not with them. So we are suspecting he must have been abducted because his phones were not with him,” ￼ “All effort to trace him were unsuccessful,” he said. Mr.
Wada’s son, Abdulmumuni, said the family was very worried. He said his father left his phones at home and could not be reached. At the mosque where he worshiped that morning, it was confirmed they saw him at the mosque during the morning prayers.
Recalled that the governing APC has two factions in Kaduna. One is led by Shuaibu Idris, and is recognized by the Kaduna state government, while another is led by Mr. Wada which is backed by two senators from the state: Shehu Sani and Suleiman Hunkuyi.
Meanwhile, effort to speak to Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Austin Iwar was unsuccessful. The National Working Committee of the APC has tried to reconcile the factions to no avail.
