The convoy of Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has reportedly been attacked by yet-to-identified gunmen.
Government officials confirmed the attack but stated that the governor was not in the convoy as at the time of its attack.
About three policemen are said to have been injured in the attack as the convoy made its way from Zamfara State to Kano following the defection ceremony of Governor Bello Matawalle who recently defected from PDP to APC.
Reports indicate that the Kano State Governor had joined the convoy of his Jigawa State counterpart before the attack occurred.
It was further gathered that the gunmen blocked the highway and opened gunfire as soon as the convoy appeared.
