Senator Shehu Sani has alleged that Governor el-Rufai ordered the demolition of Barrister Inuwa Abdulkadir's residence because of their close relationship.
The Yakubu Avenue residence of Abdulkadir, North West zonal Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a close ally of Senator Sani was destroyed by the Kaduna State Urban Planning Development Agency (KASUPDA) days ago.
Senator Sani, who stated this during a solidarity visit to Abdulkadir in Abuja, said the demolition of the house was politically motivated.
"As far as I’m concerned, the action taken against you (Abdulkadir) is political and I also believe that your house was demolished because of your firm resolve in seeing that the party is run according to its constitution and the laws to which it was established.
"I feel responsible for what happened to you because, if you have done the bidding or turned yourself to a stooge of those who want you to subvert the rule of law, your house wouldn’t have been demolished," he said.Responding, Abdulkadir said the demolition of the house will not stop him from discharging his duties in line with the APC Constitution.
