SENATOR representing Gombe South Senatorial District, Barrister Joshua Lidani narrowly escaped being lynched as angry protesters Monday attacked him with stones in Talasse town, headquarters of Balanga Local Government Area of Gombe state.
 
Senator Lidani was in Talasse to inspect classroom projects when hundreds of youth stormed the Palace of Bala Waja, Alhaji Danjuma Mohammed where he had gone to pay homage and held him hostage, inside.

A resident of the town who crave for anonymity told Newsmen in Gombe that the Senator had visited the town to supervise the level of a building project he awarded at the Community College of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Talasse when the angry youth attacked him.

The eyewitness said that “The youth stormed the palace when they learnt that Senator Lidani was in town demanding an explanation on what he was doing for them for the past seven years that he has been at the Senate representing the area”.

“They pelted stones at his motorcade and later laid siege at the Bala Waja’s palace waiting for him to come out and explain to them,” he said.

According to the witness, since his election in 2015, he never visited the town nor brought any constituency project to them, with the exception of the three blocks of classrooms that he built at the College.

Another resident of the town told our correspondent on phone that, it took a combined effort of soldiers and mobile policemen stationed in the town to be able to evacuate the Senator from the palace to safety.

EKITI State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said President Muhammadu Buhari was presiding over the most corrupt government in the history of Nigeria and protecting looters of the country’s commonwealth, adding that; “Nigerians have seen through their deceit and will no longer buy that fake image of integrity they are trying to sell.”


 
The governor said; “With the Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, saying that corruption has become more endemic in Nigeria than it was in the last 16 years, with the country moving 12 places below its rating, an honourable government would have stopped using fight against corruption as its major achievement and releasing names of people who are still under trial as looters just to cover up its failure.”

He said the first list of alleged looters released by the government was politically motivated and the second one was an afterthought that was done to cover the shame of the government because Nigerians questioned the first list.

In a release issued on Monday, by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose reiterated that Nigerians were more interested in their welfare, security of their lives and physical development of the country than tales of concocted lists of corrupt Nigerians, who are only corrupt in the estimation of the government because they do not belong to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said; “the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) never pretended to Nigerians that it had corrupt people in its fold and the party never protected them. Today, the party has gone ahead to offload the corrupt elements into the APC and they were not only accepted gladly into the party, they were given prominent appointments by the President.”

The governor, who likened President Buhari to a father who is protecting his children that are armed robbers but calling on security agents to arrest children of his neighbour for stealing meats from their mother’s pot, said; “For any lists of alleged looters to be credible, the President, who is protecting looters should be number one while those looters in his government should follow.
