The angry youths were said to have chanted hate slurs on the lawmaker, shouting, ” Bama yi, Bama yi, Bama yi,” meaning we don’t like you.

One of the angry youths told newsmen that they took the decision to register their dissatisfaction with the representation of the lawmaker at the National Assembly.

State police spokesperson Lawan Shiisu Adam confirmed the incident.

He said the incident happened when the lawmaker ran into rival support groups, one for a serving member and the others of a politician who intends to take the seat in 2023.
