Speaking to newsmen  on the incidence , one of the members who was injured in the process, Ado Wakili representing Burra Constituency in Ningi LGA narrated that, “We were inside having a meeting when we suddenly heard noice and banging at the gate, as we rushed out to see what was happening, the hoodlums rushed in holding guns, cutlasses and other dangerous weapons”


According to him  , “all of scampered for safety and in the process many of us including me were injured as you can see on my face just below my eyes. They really turned everything upside down. By the time we came out, they had smashed all our cars and the windows of the  houses.
