There was a gun duel between security operatives attached to Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje’s convoy and some heavily armed bandits along Shema in Katsina State.
Although sources say Ganduje was not in the convoy, it came under attack by bandits around Shema on their way back to Kano from Zamfara State on Tuesday.
Governor Ganduje was in Zamfara State to attend the formal defection of Governor Bello Matawale of Zamfara into the All Progressives Congress (APC).
However, after the occasion, he joined Jigawa State Governor, Muhammadu Abubakar Badaru, back to Kano.
Kano State Commissioner for Information Muhammad Garba confirmed the development.
In the ensuing gun duel, three police officers were said to have sustained minor bullet injuries, while the convoy ambulance was riddled with bullets.
