The senator was then invited to make comments and announce his donation before the arrival of the governor who was already in Kaba for the occasion.

Shortly after he announced a donation of N3mmlillion cash, he headed for his car while some suspected thugs started throwing stones and other missiles at him as he made way for his G wagon car.

The security men had to use tear gas to bring the situation under control.

Meanwhile, all the security apparatus of the state governor led by his ADC and the Chief Details were at the venue ahead of the governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello who was expected to grace the occasion.

According to the source, there was strong indication that some people might also cause crisis if the governor had come for the programme.
