North West Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Inuwa Abdulkadir on Wednesday said he was not surprised by the demolition of his residence in Kaduna allegedly on the orders of Governor Nasiru el-Rufai.
Abdulkadir told the News Agency of Nigeria [NAN] in a telephone interview that the governor had sometimes back threatened to take such action against him.
The APC chieftain said the governor had made the threat in the presence of six other governors from the North West.
“I am not surprised by his action, it is a political vendetta. But I will not make further comment because the case is already in court.”
Officials of the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Authority [KASUPDA] backed by the police demolished the four-bedroom duplex on Wednesday.
The officials had claimed that there was no official permit for the erection of the building.
Abdulkadir and el-Rufai had been having running battle over the internal crisis in the state chapter of the APC.
The North West office of the party had quashed the suspension of Shehu Sani and asked officials of the party loyal to el-Rufai to abide by the directive.
The APC has also mandated Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina state to mediate in the crisis, but the move is yet to bear fruits.
The Special Adviser to the governor on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye declined comment on the matter.
He said that only KASUPDA could respond appropriately on the propriety of its action.
