Taraba Governor, Darius Ishaku has distanced himself from attack on the convoy of the Women Affairs and Social Development Minister, Aisha Alhassan, during Saturday’s Assembly bye- election in Takum.

Ishaku, who spoke through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Bala Dan-Abu, said the allegation that he sponsored thugs to attack the minister was very malicious.

The convoy of the Minister was on Saturday attacked by hoodlums alleged to have been sponsored by the Governor.

Youths in Takum had pelted the minister’s convoy with stones, shattering windscreens of two vehicles in her convoy.

According to an eyewitness, the minister and other APC chieftains were attacked while monitoring the bye-election at Rogo Ward within Takum metropolis.

The minister, Alhassan later confirmed the attack on her.

But Governor Ishaku, who condemned the attack, said it was wrong and wicked to associate him with the attack.
