The Nigerian army has denied involvement in the demolition of a house belonging to Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi on the orders of Kaduna State Governor Nasir Elrufai.
The demolition of the property which doubles as Hunkuyi’s home and office, fueled insinuations that it was a case of vendetta by Elrufai.
Through his twitter account, Hunkuyi had alleged that soldiers riding in armored tanks had accompanied the Governor to the property for the demolition job.
“Mallam Elrufai personally drove a bulldozer accompanied by armored tanks to destroy my house at 11B Sambo Road. This is a new low and fighting dirty with such low level of pettiness is indeed unprecedented in Kaduna State”, Hunkuyi who represents Kaduna North in the senate, shared on Twitter.
However, in a recent statement Col. Muhammad Dole, warned against dragging the army into politics.
“The attention of the 1 Division Nigerian Army has been drawn to a Twitter message, a report in mass and social media of alleged involvement of military personnel in the demolition of a politician’s property by the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency (KASUPDA).
