Stray Bullet Hits Young Boy As Army Tried To Rescue Gombe Senator Who Was Forced Into Hiding By Protesters (Graphic Photo)

The senator representing Gombe South, Joshua Lidani, was held hostage by protesters in his constituency. A live Facebook update by an activist, Ibrahim Wala, monitored on Monday said Mr. Lidani paid an unscheduled visit to Talasse town, the headquarters of Balanga Local Government Area to meet with political associates.

However, one of the protesters who spoke on phone said Mr. Lidani, a former deputy governor, was hiding inside the residence of the traditional ruler of the town.


He said the protesters were asking the senator to come out and “answer some of their questions.”

He said the grouse of the protesters with Mr. Lidani is that “he refused to visit Talasse since his election despite several appeals.”

He also said the senator refused to answer or return calls from the people of his constituency “only for him to sneak in without notifying them.”

He said the police were invited to the scene but they had to retreat to a distance to avoid confrontation with the large crowd.

“Apart from those at the emir’s palace, several youth groups have also blocked all other roads the senator may seek to sneak out, not just in Talasse here, but other villages along the road as well,” he said.

While some Army Officers attempted to forcefully rescue the Senator from the building it was revealed that they fired gunshots in the air to scare the crowd but unfortunately an innocent young boy was hit by the stray bullet.
