He further raised alarm, “See how Nigerian Police from the Kano State Command dismantled our podiums and canopies after injuring some PDP party faithfuls, and afterwards carted away with the canopies, podiums, chairs, speakers and sound systems at the venue of PDP reception ceremony where it was planned that #HaskenKanawa Engr.

They almost collected my phone,” he added.
