Journalist Petitions Security Agencies over Threat to Life by Governor-Elect

Mr. Hassan Wuyo
Kaduna State Correspondent of Vanguard Newspaper

Mr. Hassan Wuyo, the Kaduna State Correspondent of the Vanguard newspaper, on March 27, 2023, petitioned security agencies alleging a threat to his life by the Kaduna State governor-elect, Senator Uba Sani.  He asked to be protected from harm

In the petition titled “My sad encounter with the governor-elect” Hassan alleged that while honouring an invitation by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state the governor-elect singled him out and threatened his life. He said he “was threatened, psychologically depressed and emotionally unbalanced” by Sen. Sani.

Narrating his ordeal, the journalist said he received an invitation on March 26, 2023, to cover a press conference by the Kaduna State governor-elect, Uba Sani, at the APC campaign office at Isa Kaita Road, Kaduna, only to be descended upon with anger and threats.

He said while in the hall, the governor-elect asked about his medium and when he informed him that he is the Correspondent of Vanguard Media, Sen. Sani suddenly changed his countenance and began to heap blames on him and said unapologetically that his reports as published in the Vanguard were against his political interest.

Hassan therefore sought security cover against any harm from Sen. Uba Sani.
