Zamfara commissioner stripped naked during Assembly by-election

Thugs stripped a female commissioner in Zamfara State, (name withheld) naked during the just-concluded House of Assembly by-election in Anka, which took place at the weekend.

An eyewitness told the Nigerian Tribune that the commissioner, who is a card-carrying member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was seen by some thugs distributing wrappers and detergents to some women on the day of the election.

According to the source, “the situation didn’t go down well with these youths whose loyalty is with the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP).”

When the thugs accosted her and asked her why she was campaigning for PDP while campaign had closed, she was said to be adamant.

Source confided in the Nigerian Tribune that this enraged the youth who pounced on her, tore her cloths and stripped her naked.

The pandemonium that followed this attracted by-passers who rushed to the scene of the incident and rescued the embattled commissioner from the hoodlums.

When contacted, the commissioner confirmed the incident but was quick to add that any politician worth his salt would not be bothered by such experience.

She maintained that she did not regret her action and would do the same if the opportunity came again.

It will be recalled that the by-election for the House of Assembly took place at Anka following the demise of a member of the House of Assembly, Saidu Bagega, in October, 2010.
