Senator Shehu Sani has claimed an aspirant who failed to secure the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the House of Representatives election recovered over N100 million from delegates, with the use of vigilantes and hunters.
He tweeted, “A man who has lost the House of reps ticket in Kaduna has recovered over M100 Million from Delegates this evening using vigilantes and hunters,” Sani tweeted.

The former lawmaker had earlier tweeted that some aspirants who lost the recent primaries had been moving from house to house, arresting delegates who collected their money and didn’t vote for them.
Adam Namadi, son of former Vice-President Namadi Sambo, after securing just two votes had asked delegates to refund the N2 million each he doled out before the PDP primaries in Kaduna North Federal Constituency of the House of Representatives.
Namadi, who had promised to add N1.5 million to the amount given to each of the delegates, secured the least votes among the three contenders.
