The Coalition of United Civil Society Organisations in Bauchi State has urged  President Muhammadu Buhari to call Air Marshal Saddique Abubakar, the Guber candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC to order, over killings that dogged his campaigns in  some parts of the state.

The Coalition observed that several citizens had been shot dead while many left were injured during the APC Gubernatorial campaign rallies at Akuyam, Toro and Duguri, the hometown of Governor Bala Mohammed of the  People’s Democratic Party (PDP)

In an open letter addressed to the President entitled AIR MARSHAL SADIQUE ABUBAKAR SHOW OF FORCE AND VIOLENT INTIMIDATION IN BAUCHI STATE:  The group urged the President to urgently call Abubakar to order to prevent further bloodshed ahead of the March 18 Governorship and State Assembly Elections.

“For the love of peace, progress and development of Bauchi state the above-named coalition wishes to notify you on the pressing issue at hand as referenced in the above subject matter,” the letter signed by ,Dr. Yunusa Idris Ndargomi, the Converner, stated.

“Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar campaign trail has been nothing but a calamity to the good and peace-loving people of Bauchi state, reasons being that;

“His campaign is characterized by show of force and violent intimidation on innocent citizens whom in one way or the other showed disapproving gestures against his aspirations.

“Security attached to him has shot and kill two innocent persons in Akuyam district of Misau LGA while on a campaign tour, reason for that act of violence remains show of intolerance in a democratic setting.

“Same scenario happened in Gumau town of Toro LGA were thugs and security attached to him fired live ammunition into dispersing crowd as they shouted the slogan “Bamayi” in the process injuring scores

“Recently security attached to him also shot five innocent people in Duguri district of Alkaleri LGA of the state, killing one person in the process and injuring many.

“Mr President may wish to know that, in all the above listed instances the person in question has never for once showed empathy and has neither visited the families of the victims, nor sympathised with their families or their communities.

“This has further confirmed the notion that the APC flag bearer has approved the use of violent intimidation against the innocent citizens he so desires to rule”

The therefore pleaded with the President to as a matter of urgency call Air Marshall Sadique Abubakar to order and caution the security to avoid being partisan in their line of duties.
