The Chairman Senate Committee on Navy, Senator Isah Hamma Misau, has been allegedly stoned by angry youths who wanted to lynch him in his constituency because of his support for the embattled senate president, Bukola Saraki.

THISDAY checks revealed that Misau, who is the senator representing Bauchi Central senatorial district in the senate, was allegedly shouted at and stoned by angry youths in Ningi where he had gone for a party engagement on Saturday.

He was the sponsor of the bill to amend the CCT Act which is believed to be aimed at stalling the trial of the senate president by the CCT for false declaration of assets and other charges.

Reports from a source who pleaded anonymity informed our reporter that the youths chanted abusive words and attacked the senator when they sighted him.

According to the source,”Yes, he was attacked by youths who were angry with him over his type of representation. He has never talked about anything that will better the life of his constituents, but he is always over the radio defending Saraki over his trial by the Code of Conduct Tribunal”.

Another source, Alhaji Nura Manu Soro, who spoke to our reporter on telephone expressed fear that the attack on the senator‎ may turn into a security threat as the youths exchanged hot words with security agencies who rescued the senator.
