Senator representing Kaduna Central has been handed an indefinite suspension by the All Progressives Congress (APC.
Controversial Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai was earlier yesterday accused of offering a N3 million bribe to All Progressives Congress [APC] officials in Kaduna State for them to suspend Senator Shehu Sani.
The APC officials of Ward 6, Kaduna South Local Government Area, said this on Sunday at a press conference.
But a letter addressed to him, dated November 29 and signed by 15 executives from his ward conveyed suspension.

The letter was made available to Elombah.com on Wednesday evening.
However Abbas Anni, the chairman of APC, Ward 6, yesterday spoke on behalf of his colleagues accusing El rufai of destabilizing the party in the state..
Mr. Anni called on the APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, and other leaders to intervene in the Kaduna crisis.
He said they should act fast “before the Kaduna State Governor and his cronies destroy APC in Kaduna State.”
He, also, called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC], to investigate the bribery allegation.
They alleged that Uba Sani, the political adviser of El-Rufai, offered the bribe to some of their fellow executive members to suspend Senator Sani.
Messrs. Sani and El-Rufai are both leaders of APC in Kaduna but are political adversaries.
The party official also linked the new allegation to a previous one in December last year when some of his fellow executives were accused of receiving N500,000 bribe to suspend Mr. Sani from the party.
