The clash, which also left one person injured, took place at the party’s secretariat on Wednesday, November 16, according to Daily Trust.

The Kano APC has been split due to a rift between Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and his predecessor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

Chaos is said to have erupted after some political thugs started shouting ‘Bama yi,’ meaning, ‘we don’t like Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas,’ who is the factional chairman of the party loyal to Ganduje.

The verbal protests reportedly led Abbas supporters to retaliate resulting to a brawl.

“…Unfortunately, Abbas’s supporters reacted violently and the development resulted in a clash that led to the death of one person while another one was injured,” an APC source said.

The incident has been confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Magaji Musa Majia.
