Irate youth from Eggon tribe in Nasarawa State on Sunday attacked former Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, Chris Mamman and Senator Solomon Ewuga at the palace of Bala Angbazo, the paramount ruler of Eggon people. The three are Eggon kinsfolk seeking to contest the governorship election under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. The monarch was mediating among Maku, Mamman and Ewuga to see if one of them would emerge the consensus candidate. While this was going on, the youths, allegedly miffed by Mamman’s decision to contest, interrupted them. Mamman is the immediate past National President, Eggon Cultural Association, ECD.
While Maku was first to escape unhurt, soldiers invited to restore order rescued the other two men. Mamman’s Toyota Corolla car was burnt during the attack.
