From Tom Garba, Yola
Senator Binta Garba of Adamawa North Senatorial District has lamented a recent attack on her entourage by some youths in Mubi town.
It was gathered that Garba, who was in Mubi to pay homage to the emir and launch her empowerment programme for the people of the area which form part of her constituency, was forced to bolt away by some youths who defied security men to harass the senator and her entourage.
The senator had to abandoned her mission in Mubi and proceed to Michika after seeing the emir briefly.
Apart from the harassment by youths believed to be sponsored, the senator was said to have been denied access to Mubi Government Lodge by the Mubi North Local Government Council.
Speaking on the development, Garba, who said the matter was being investigated described it as “unfortunate.”
“What happened in Mubi is rather unfortunate. Investigation is still going on; I wouldn’t want to hold anybody responsible. When the security agents finish their findings, the culprit will definitely be brought to book,” Garba said.
